Student Internship Program Information

A student enrolled in the Fullerton College Internship Program will work at a site related to his/her major, while earning academic credit during one term. The student is ultimately responsible to find the internship, but the faculty advisor will work with the student to guide them in the process. Students can elect 2 to 4 units during the term where the first unit is lecture and each additional unit requires 60 hours in the term for an unpaid internship or 75 hours in the term for a paid internship for each unit.  Faculty supervise the academic component of the internship and evaluate the student’s internship experiences.

2 units = 60 unpaid hours/75 paid hours

3 units = 120 unpaid hours/150 paid hours

4 units = 180 unpaid units/225 paid units

A guide has been developed for students with instructions on how to complete the Internship Application and Placement Form on FCCareerConnect. If you are a student who is interested in the Internship Program, please click Internship Program Student Guide and follow the steps. These steps will lead students to FCCareerConnect, find internships, and complete the application as well as other internship forms. Students are then responsible for registering for an internship course at their scheduled registration date and time for the selected term.  Please see the internship courses offered below.
