The Department of Labor and State of California require students who intern at a for-profit company to either be paid or receive academic credit for the internship.

If your company requires Verification of Academic Credit, click HERE for instructions.

NOTE: Students are required to find and secure their own internships before scheduling their first intake appointment with an intake coordinator at the Center for Community Learning. To be eligible for 195CE credit, internships must involve challenging college-level work and must take place at a supervised off-campus workplace (no telecommuting or home offices). Internships may be paid or unpaid, but positions that would be classified strictly as part-time or full-time jobs by the Department of Labor (including most retail and commission-based sales positions) are NOT eligible for credit.

Internship courses are offered every quarter on a first-come, first-served basis, including the 10-week Summer Session A. New students can schedule intake appointments STARTING Week 8 of the quarter preceding the internship or during Weeks 0-2. NOTE: The deadline to enroll is FRIDAY OF WEEK 2.
