The Lariat Online (Bayor U, TX) reminds students of the price of getting credits for an internship.
Most internship sponsors, instead of paying their interns, require them to work for only university credit. Unfortunately, the price of university credit is high — very high. For those whose majors offer an internship class, the cost is $986 per credit hour. Internship classes are worth three hours, so that’s $2,958 to pay for an internship that’s probably unpaid and for experience that you aren’t gaining directly from the university itself. That’s an expensive summer.
It’s expensive, yes. And maybe a little ridiculous?
