Important Notes:

 Internship Credit Restrictions:
If you intend to use an internship for IST 495 credit, please note that undergraduate and graduate students, whether University personnel or otherwise, are not permitted to receive academic credit for any work, research, or activity in violation of federal law, including work associated with marijuana.  Employers involved in the hemp industry, however, may recruit students for both non-credit and credit bearing positions.  If you have questions about a particular internship experience, please contact
