Student Internships

One of the things that makes HHP special when compared to other colleges is all HHP students with the exception of athletic training students are required to complete a full semester of internship. This internship requirement needs to be completed prior to graduation and should be done during the semester of expected graduation, and after all other coursework has been successfully completed. Credit hours for the internship requirement are included in the credit hour total required for graduation.

Internship Eligibility

To be eligible students must:

  • Have completed ALL other required courses and be eligible to graduate upon successful completion of the internship semester. This includes majors, minors, certificates, correspondence, general education, Writing and Math requirements, International/Diversity and study abroad.
  • Have a UF, upper-division cumulative major and universal tracking GPA of at least a 2.0, with no I, N or NG grades or flags.
  • Have no deficit points.
  • Have all grades posted to UF transcript two weeks prior to starting internship.
  • Have submitted all internship materials by the deadlines set by their department and have been approved for internship.

Students can only register and attempt to successfully complete practicum (if required by major) and internship two times. If unable to successfully complete after two attempts the student may be dismissed from the program.
