Internships provide valuable opportunities to tap into the growing talent pool in Columbus. The following are CCAD’s requirements for a student to earn college credits for an internship:
- The experience must span the duration of a full semester (8 weeks for summer or 16 weeks for spring/fall).

- The work must be directly related to the student’s major area of study.
- The supervisor must be an industry professional within the student’s major area of study.
