On-Campus Internships


On-Campus Internship (OCI) Program

OCI is a new On-Campus Internship Program that provides a student an opportunity to both work and gain valuable internship experience on the CCU campus. It’s available to full-time sophomores, juniors and seniors seeking a first bachelor’s degree and in good standing with the University. A minimum of 2.5 GPA is required of all participants. Departments offering these positions must be willing to provide the training and supervision necessary for a quality internship.

The University has provided on-campus employment to its students for many years. The internships offered through the On-Campus Internship (OCI) Program differ significantly from most other student employment positions on-campus as they are designed to provide professional knowledge and skill development consistent with the student’s major/career goals. Examples of internships include human resources, admissions, marketing and media, event planning, administration, educational technology, training, sustainability, counseling, student activities, athletics, recreation and business.  

Combining the new On-Campus Internship Program with the Student Employment on-campus jobs already available to CCU students will allow a student to:

  • Earn income without leaving campus
  • Apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom in a real work environment
  • Gain valuable experience to add to a resume
  • Earn academic credit

The Office of Human Resources and Equal Opportunity coordinates all on-campus student employment at https://www.coastal.edu/hreo/workplace/studentjobs/.

Once the hiring department/office reviews the listing of applicants for the On-Campus Internship and select a student(s) for the internship, the internship supervisor will meet with the student and complete an Internship Learning Contract and send the student to their departmental internship adviser to discuss course enrollment. The internship guidelines, benefits and forms for supervisors are available in the Career Service Center or online at http://www.coastal.edu/internships/employers/.
