Please do not wait until the last minute. It is highly recommended that you apply for the credit the semester previous to the one you plan to intern.NOTE: The application process for an internship and co-op is the same process


        Courses ending in '6' are Co-ops, and courses ending in '8' are Internships. You must have a KSU GPA to be considered for the programs.

          • End of Semester Report

          For more information about these assignments, including due dates, please check Desire2Learn (D2L).

          * The supervisor evaluation link will be sent (toward the end of the semester) to the supervisor of each student enrolled in a co-op course. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the evaluation is completed by their supervisor and returned to the Department of Career Planning and Development on time.

        NOTE: Co-ops should have some form of compensation; options may include salary, commuting expenses, meals, and/or events. Co-ops may be a multiple semester commitment, so Co-op students are able to reapply each semester with “No Changes” to their responsibilities. Co-ops can only earn a maximum of 3 credit hours per semester.

        • Internships may or may not be paid, but are TYPICALLY PAID
        • You must have a KSU GPA to be considered for the programs.
        • Course assignments are available in D2L
        • S/U*:  Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory:  Grade received for course
        • If your internship/co-op is more than 50 miles away from KSU, your fees will be waived if requested (email Kathy Hallmark, khallmar@kennesaw.edu)
        • The best way to find a position is to log into Handshake and complete your profile. Look at opportunities under “Jobs” and submit your resume if you meet the qualifications.You can also find an internship on your own without using Handshake, as long as you meet the academic requirements, you will be able to count that job for class credit.

          If you already have a job that you feel qualifies as a Co–op or Internship, review the qualifications for academic credit that are specific to your major.  All positions have to be approved through The Department of Career Planning & Development. NOTE: KSU does not give retroactive credit.

          Review the Guiding Principles for Internship & Co-op Participation

        • Cooperative Education (Co-op)- Students work for at least two semesters with the same company in positions that provide experience directly related to their academic majors. They receive academic credit for participation and must be paid a wage or alternative form of compensation (e.g. commuting expenses, meals, tickets, etc).

          • Position may be part–time or full–time, and may occur every semester or in alternating semesters.
          • Students must have a KSU GPA to participate in a co-op (transfer students cannot participate in their first semester at KSU).
          • Sophomores, juniors, seniors, or students in graduate school with a declared eligible major, at least 30 completed credit hours, and a 2.50 GPA are eligible to participate.

          Internships - Employment that closely relates to the student’s major and is usually one semester in length. Students also receive academic credit for their participation and the position may be paid or unpaid, depending on the major.

          • The internship may be part–time or full–time, and is available to eligible juniors, seniors, and graduate students with a declared major.
          • Students must have a KSU GPA to participate in an internship (transfer students cannot participate in their first semester).
          • GPA and semester hour requirements vary by major.
          • For questions or to learn more about your particular situation, we recommend you set up an appointment with your Career & Internship Advisor
