Academic Internships - Student Instructions

To be eligible for an Internship Course, you must:

  1. Be in good academic standing and not be on academic probation
  2. Have a 2.0 GPA or higher (Major Department May Vary)
  3. Have a job/ internship offer that relates to your major/option (AACE can help)

Note: International / F-1 Visa students: The AACE staff cannot advise you on eligibility. The Center for International Education (CIE) at CSUEB is your official point of contact to determine your eligibility to work off-campus. Once you obtain permission to work off-campus from the CIE and obtain a job or internship, you may enroll in an Internship Course through your major (498 for undergraduates or 698 graduates). Specific majors who offer an internship course may have different requirements.  To be up to date with these requirements, please contact your major department directly.
