For Students Seeking Internships
There are two types of internships in the Coggin College of Business,Academic and Non-Academic. For both types of internships, it is the student's responsibility to find and secure their own internships. Students can visit Osprey CareerLink to search for opportunities or schedule an appointment with the Career Management Center to discuss additional search strategies.
Students may be able to receive academic credit for an internship that is directly related to their major. Each major has different criteria for what is required in order for the student to receive credit for the internship. Please read over the specific guidelines for your major. With a few minor exceptions, all academic internships must be paid.

Non-academic internships are essentially the same experience as an academic internship but without the academic credit component. The internship timeline, pay and internship job requirements are all determined by the student and the employer.
For Employers Seeking Students
The UNF Coggin College of Business is an excellent place for employers to recruit new interns.
If you would like to offer an academic internship that will enable a student to gain valuable real-world experience and earn academic credit towards their major, please review the applicable academic internship guides above. The guides outline the criteria that is required for a position to qualify as an academic internship experience. It is important to note that ALL CCB majors require that their internship be paid in order for the student to receive credit.
While there are no “formal” requirements for non-academic internships, you might find the following information for “typical” internships helpful in structuring your internship.
- Hours: 15-20 hours per week. Some end up working more depending on the needs within the organization and the student’s desire to earn money/gain experience.
- Length: Our semesters run 16 weeks start to finish so something in the 12-14 week range is typical.
- Pay: The general average on pay that is competitive enough for students to consider is $10-12/hr.
- Hiring Criteria: Typical criteria for that employers consider are GPA, major, grad date, completed coursework
Organizations offering unpaid internships are welcome to advertise their position(s) to CCB students using Osprey CareerLink and other recruitment methods. However, it is the organizations responsibility to ensure that they are in compliance with all relevant state and federal laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act.
