Summer Internship Units via SBP – great for CPA license requirements

Do you have a summer internship? Do you need to be enrolled in a course for your internship? Do you need units for your CPA license?

Then the internship course through SBP is for you!

You can enroll in either:

Econ x430.98 – Accounting Internship Seminar (2 units)
Econ x430.99 – Business Internship Seminar (2 units)

Each internship requires
:

  • 45 hours of employer contact
  • Enrollment via the extension website (see above) and completed entry questionnaire prior to internship
  • Participation in one 3 hour seminar after the internship is completed; at which time students must give a 15 minute presentation on either an Accounting (x430.98) or Business (x430.99) topic related to your internship.

You may enroll in both courses but this requires:

  • 90 hours of contact time
  • 2 presentations
  • 2 – 3 hour class meetings

You should only be enrolled in both courses if you have an internship at an accounting firm.

All 4 units can  count towards your CPA license, but only 2 can be used towards the completion of the certificate.
