As part of the Centre Commitment, Centre College guarantees students who meet the College’s academic and social expectations an internship. At Centre, we believe that an internship outside of the classroom is integral to your academic experience.
First, you must have been enrolled for one academic year prior to accepting a paid, off-campus internship (9 months). Second, the internship must be relevant to your major at Centre College.
• OFF Campus PAID internship: requires CPT and registration in an internship course. You must be registered full-time at Centre and the internship must be relevant to your chosen major.
• OFF Campus UNPAID internship: does not require CPT. You must be registered full-time at Centre College.
•Out of State Internship, UNPAID: will require CPT. You must be registered full-time at Centre with the exception of internships you participate in while the school is not in session.
• ON Campus PAID internship: Will not require CPT, but you must register with Stephen Swan for “On-Campus Employment.” Bring a letter from your immediate supervisor stating the nature of your internship, your supervisor’s name and contact information, and the number of hours you will work each week.
• ON Campus UNPAID internship: Will not require CPT. You must be registered full time at Centre College.
Note: It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that they are in compliance with labor laws, i.e., you cannot have an unpaid internship for duties that would normally require an individual be paid.
