Students must satisfy the internship requirements of both Johnson College and the internship provider as a condition of graduation. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.00 to meet the minimum qualification for internship through Johnson College. Some internship sites may require students to obtain a higher GPA in their agreement. Some internship sites may also require proof of current health care coverage, a criminal background check, and/or a drug test. Internship sites may bar students from an internship if a criminal record exists or a drug test has a positive result. Costs for travel to and from an internship site are the responsibility of the student. The schedule for meeting the requirement of this experience will be arranged between the student, faculty member and internship site.
