Internship Wage Regulations
All unpaid internships posted with Career Services and Leadership Development must conform to wage regulations as outlined by the U.S. Dept. of Labor's Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Please review the Wage and Hour Division's six-point unpaid intern test to ensure that your internship program falls within federal standards.
Internships for Academic Credit
Many students are interested in earning academic credit during their internship or co-op. For a program to be eligible for academic credit, the employer/organization must work in conjunction with a faculty advisor to fulfill specific requirements established by the student's academic department. Often such a program involves little additional effort on the part of the employer. Consult directly with the Deans' or Chairs' offices of appropriate SF State College departments for more information. Some departments have designated internship advisors. You are encouraged to reach out to your department for the most up to date information on internship advisors. US Department of Labor Internship Programs FLSA
