Off-Campus Internship Program

Off-campus Undergraduate Internship Course (INT)

Hello potential Undergraduate INT student!

The Center for Career and Professional Development is pleased to inform you about the two undergraduate internship courses we offer. INT 1010 (section 001) is our part-time internship course and requires a minimum of 160 internship-site hours, while INT 2010 (section 001) is our full-time internship course and requires a minimum of 320 site hours. Both courses correspond with students via the web, which enables students to intern on national and international levels. If you are a graduate student seeking an internship course, we offer INT 8010. This course also corresponds via the web and allows graduate students to maintain their student status while on an internship assignment.


Should you choose to enroll in either class, your first responsibility will be to secure an internship in your major or field of interest. Please note that internship site approval by the INT course instructors (Brittany Neely or Troy Nunamaker) is required on or before the last day that students may add a class to their course schedule in any given semester. Should you desire, the Career Center can assist you in your internship search process.

The fee for the course is $200. The last day to withdraw from the class without a W Grade is consistent with the last day to withdraw from any course according to the Clemson University academic calendar, which can be found at http://www.registrar.clemson.edu/html/Acad_Cal.htm.

If you need any help with completing forms or sending letters to your department concerning your internship experience to your internship site, please do not hesitate to contact Brittany Neely or Troy Nunamaker (contact information given below).

INT 1010 / 1020 / 1030

A minimum of 160 contact hours (part-time). Students can enroll in INT 1010 as part of a full time course load during fall and spring semesters or enroll in only INT 1010 for the summer semesters. Zero credit hour course. Register for INT 1010 if this is your first part-time internship experience and have never taken an INT course in the past. Register for INT 1020 if this is your second part-time internship experience and you previously enrolled in INT 1010. Register for INT 1030 if this is your third part-time internship experience and you previously enrolled in both INT 1010 and 1020.

INT 2010 / 2020 / 2030

A minimum of 320 contact hours (full time). Students enroll only in INT 2010 and work full time during any semester. Zero credit hour course. Register for INT 2010 if this is your first full-time internship experience and have never taken an INT course in the past. Register for INT 2020 if this is your second full-time internship experience and you previously enrolled in INT 2010. Register for INT 2030 if this is your third full-time internship experience and you previously enrolled in both INT 2010 and 2020.

Students can add the course to their course load just as they would any other class through iRoar. If it is after the last day to register/add a class, contact:

Once students add the course, Kathy Horner or Troy Nunamaker will be in touch with the appropriate paperwork that needs to be completed.

  • Receive support throughout the internship and guidance on how to make the most of the experience.
  • Maintain full-time student status (INT 2010/2020/2030 only) during the fall or spring semester that you are interning.
  • Receive academic notation of the internship experience on your CU official transcript.
  • Pay only a registration fee and not full tuition on the INT course.
  • By being enrolled in an internship course, the income earned by you from the internship is treated differently for financial aid determination. It may also place your scholarships on pause, not start your federal student loan repayment plan, and keep you continuously enrolled for insurance purposes. Contact Financial Aid to determine your eligibility.

  • Secure a position with at least 50% collegiate level, career-related work experience.
  • Contact the Financial Aid Office to set up a time to discuss how taking INT will affect your financial aid package. 
  • Register for the appropriate INT course.
  • Complete the INT Student Contact & Responsibilities form to be approved for the internship.
  • Complete the prospectus (survey and goals).
  • Work the required minimum hours and submit documentation.
  • Complete an electronic internship training workshop.
  • Complete final internship evaluations.

  1. Contact and Responsibilities Form – You are responsible for completing the Career Center Contact & Responsibilities Form with your site mentor and turning it in via Canvas. A fillable PDF of the form is located within the Assignments section, and you can also click here to view and download a copy. This form must be turned into our office for approval. Please check the accuracy of your supervisor’s contact information when completing form.   Please contact Brittany Neely or Troy Nunamaker should you have any questions or concerns about this matter. 

  2. Prospectus - The prospectus is a survey of your current proficiency levels for the 9 core competencies and three goal statements for the internships (personal, academic, and professional). This is completed through Canvas.

  3. Information QuizAs the course description notes, we provide you with a Michelin Career Center internship orientation workshop introducing you to internships and how to make the most of them. Since you may not be interning in the Clemson area, please view the INT Orientation Workshop PDF located within the Getting Started module in Canvas (instead of attending an in-person workshop) and answer the ten-question quiz in the Assignments section of Canvas.

  4. Hours Documentation Submit a spreadsheet documenting all hours and methods for obtaining hours. If supplemental activities were required to reach the Required Hours total, provide supporting documentation as listed in the Required Hours section of the course syllabus.

  5. Final Evaluations Your last assignment for the internship course will be two final electronic evaluations. One evaluation you will complete, and it has a reflection essay question. The other evaluation your supervisor will complete about you and your experience. We will send the documents via email to you and your site mentor with about four weeks left in the semester. Both documents will be due at the end of the semester prior to final exam dates.

We look forward to potentially working with you through INT.  Please let us know if you have questions, concerns or updates and feel free to call, stop by, or email at any time.
