The Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) manages all internships for The College of Idaho.

To receive credit for an internship, you must file the Internship Application with our office before the final add/drop date for the semester. Internships need to be fully completed within the semester for which you are seeking credit.

If you are seeking credit for your internship a one credit internship is equivalent to 39 hours of work in the field, two credits is 78 hours, and three credits is 117 hours.

To begin the application process, you need to stop by the CEL to discuss the internship. NACE outlines the legal guidelines for all employers and is a good resource as you are beginning your internship search.

To secure an internship, search through the internships posted on Coyote Connections Live, or you can reach out to companies on your own. If you are struggling to obtain an internship, stop by our office and we can help you to make connections that may turn into a successful internship. Your faculty are another great resource in finding potential hosts for internships.

Internships are your opportunity to get real work-world experience while also obtaining academic credit. An internship can help solidify your career aspirations, open new doors and show you different career paths that you had not previously considered. Come chat with a CEL staff member today!
