Internships

The internship program at The University of Texas at Dallas assists employers in identifying qualified students to fill various part or full-time internships.

This partnership among employers, the university, and students benefits to the students by allowing them to gain practical work experience related to their majors.

Internships can be for a single semester or multiple semesters, part-time or full-time, and paid or unpaid.

In order to be eligible for an internship at UT Dallas, students must (at a minimum):

  • Be currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program.
  • Be in good academic standing (2.0 GPA for undergraduates, 3.0 GPA for graduates).
  • Have completed at least 1 semester at UT Dallas. In addition, undergraduate students must have at least 24 hours completed (including transfer hours) and graduate students must have at least 6 hours completed.
  • Meet any additional requirements imposed by the academic department or school.

Employers can choose to determine additional eligibility requirements for each internship position as needed.

Important Reminders

  • Be sure to notify the UT Dallas Career Center when you extend an offer to one of our students and confirm the student's employment with you each subsequent semester.
  • Let the UT Dallas Career Center know if you would like to set up on-campus interviews for your internship opportunities.
  • Be sure to complete the Online Employer Evaluation for each student and conduct a performance review at the end of each semester.
