IUPUI Internship Program

The IUPUI Internship Program is a self-directed program designed to help students obtain professional work experience related to their field of study. The Internship Program teaches students how to conduct effective internship job searches, monitors certain credit-earning internships, and assists students throughout the internship experience.

Internship positions may be full or part time, paid or unpaid, credit earning or noncredit. Academic credit may be offered at the discretion of the participating school or department. Credit-earning internships are similar to traditional courses in that documentation such as term papers will be required adding credit to a student’s transcript.

In order to participate in the IUPUI Internship Program, students must meet the following eligibility requirements: (1) current enrollment in a degree or certificate program at IUPUI; (2) at least sophomore status; (3) cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher; and (4) complete one full semester at IUPUI before the start of the internship. In addition, credit-earning internships are subject to the eligibility requirements of their academic department.
