Types of Internships

Require faculty approval and are mandatory for some academic programs. To receive credit, students must complete at least 144 hours in one semester.

Don’t require faculty approval. Students are encouraged to participate in non-credit internships to gain valuable work experience.

Interns receive at least the federal minimum wage for the services they provide within the “for-profit” or private sector, plus overtime. View Paid Internship details.

Interns receive educational benefit only and understand that they’re not entitled to wages or a job.  View Unpaid Internship details.

Internship Seasons

Internships should coincide with Miami Dade College’s academic calendar:

  • Fall: August - December (16-weeks)
  • Spring: January - May (16-weeks)
