The CCS is used to support students in pursuit of experiential learning opportunities. In an effort to provide students with the resources they need to engage in experiential learning opportunities, the CCS is available for unpaid internships, research opportunities, and other experiential learning activities or resources that will enhance their academic and professional growth.
You are welcome to visit our students on our Sebago Lake campus to conduct a class presentation or information session, staff a table in a high traffic area to introduce students to your business and opportunities, or collect resumes and conduct interviews with multiple candidates. You can meet with candidates from a wide variety of academic majors and programs to find the right fit. Contact us to talk about the options that will work best for you.
Internships for Course Credit
Interns are not required to receive course credit for an internship, but internships may be set up for the student to receive course credit. Internships for 4 credits require that a student work 160 hours in a semester, do academic work including keeping a weekly journal and writing papers, and a supervisor must be willing to evaluate and recommend a grade at the conclusion of the experience. Contact us to talk about options that will work best for you.
