Internship/Employer Requirements

What Kind of Internship Qualifies for Academic Credit?

The internships posted on Handshake have been pre-screened by the Bellevue College Center for Career Connections and qualify for academic credit. If you have found an internship elsewhere, we may be able to offer you academic credit, as long as the position meets the following criteria:

  1. The intern must receive supervision/mentoring and guidance.
  2. Given the COVID situation, we recommend remote internships in compliance with the governor’s guidelines. Employer must have a valid business license.
  3. If the position is paid, it must pay a guaranteed hourly wage or salary that is not based on a minimum deliverable of sales or performance.
  4. We also require employers to provide a safe environment for employees, act as an Equal Opportunity Employer, and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Sexual Harassment laws.
