Welcome to the COBE Internship Board! Below is important information about internships and a list of curated opportunities that will provide hands-on experience for business-focused students.
What to Expect from an Internship
Internships offer a lot more than clerical work and coffee runs. They provide engaging learning experiences with supportive companies and organizations. As a COBE student, an internship will help you gain hands-on experience, a bigger professional network, and the chance to explore different career paths.
Applying for Academic Credit in COBE Majors
Please note! The deadline for academic internship credit in SPRING 2019 was February 22nd. The deadline for academic internship credit in SUMMER 2019 is June 24th. All applications and approvals must be complete by these dates.
Did you know that you can earn academic credit in the subject that best aligns with your internship? Generally, every 45 hours worked equals 1 academic credit. Registration for academic credit is subject to approval by each department internship coordinator. We recommend that you check with your department’s internship coordinator and a COBE academic advisor since some departments have specific requirements for registration. These requirements might include GPA minimum, completion of prerequisite classes, or attaining junior/senior status.

For-Credit Application Process
Once you have found an internship and connected with the department coordinator, you will need to complete the following application steps to apply for academic credit.
- Log into your myBoiseState account.
- Start your electronic application by clicking the plus (+) sign next to “Internship Application for Academic Credit” on the left-hand side of the application page.
- Fill out the application with as much detail as you are able.
- Complete the required online orientation and quiz.
After you submit, the department internship coordinator will review your application for approval via email. Your internship supervisor will also need to review and approve your application via email. Once your application is approved, the Registrar’s Office will manually add your internship to your class schedule.
Using Financial Aid
Internship credit is billed at the same rate as academic credit, depending upon your part-time or full-time status. Be aware that there is a deadline to have your application submitted and approved if you plan to use internship credits toward your Financial Aid Eligibility. That deadline is typically noon on the 10th day of classes.
International Student Information
To complete an internship in the United States, international students will need to fill out a Curricular Practical Training Form (CPT). Learn more about CPTs and internship regulations through the International Student and Scholar Services office. Please contact Ruth Prince with questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 208-426-3720.
