Each student in the program is required three credit hours in an internship. The student selects the area of a university they have an interest in learning more about by spending 150 hours in that area over the semester. This allows them to build their understanding the services the area provides to students and the issues it faces. The student works with the area to construct the learning outcomes they wish to acquire through the experience. At the end of the semester the student has a portfolio of their work and submits a research paper which covers an aspect of the area they worked. Students are also encouraged to gain their internship credits through form internship programs hosted by national organizations such as National Orientation Directors Association and Association of College and University Housing Officers-International.
