Maintaining Your Internship Eligibility
Maintaining Your Eligibility While Searching for an Internship Position
To maintain your participation in the Internship Program and retain access to internship job postings, you must:
- Be enrolled as a full-time student during the term in which you are searching for and applying for positions;
- Maintain the GPA required for your program; and
- Have the minimum number of credits remaining as required by your program, not including courses currently in progress.
This information will be verified by the Career Centre and eligibility confirmed with the employer before you can accept an internship job offer.
