What is an internship?
Any agreement between a student and employer for employment for a set amount of time (between 8 and 12 weeks). It can a formal internship program with a company or it may be more informal that is an entry-level job at a small to medium size company. In most instances it is paid and it may count for school credit as an INFS elective (for undergraduate majors only).
What is not an internship (for school credit)?
The truth is, any job opportunity that has a fixed employment period (start and end date) is an internship. But to receive college credit, it cannot be a job that you are currently employed, it must be in a related IT field, and it must have some time of deliverable/project that can be used for grading purposes.
