InternshipsAt NESCom we place a high priority on assisting students interested in gaining professional experience while in school. Internships, unpaid (rarely but occasionally paid) professional work experiences for which academic credit is earned, can be arranged for students who have completed their junior year, have a minimum 3.0 GPA and have the recommendation of their department director. Students earn a minimum of three credits, for which 135 hours of work is required, to a maximum of 9 credits, requiring 435 hours at the host business. Internships may be arranged during the summer break or in either the fall or spring semesters. Students electing an “away from campus” internship during an academic semester remain eligible for financial aid and deferred payment of student loans is unaffected with a minimum 6 credits internship.
