Colorado Heights University Career Services (CHUCS) is committed to enhancing our students’ educational and professional career opportunities through career counseling, career tests, self-assessment, reflection, and internships.Students are required to actively participate in their professional development. Career Services offers opportunities for students to engage with professionals and work on their professional development. Career related workshops are advertised through the Career Services database, sent to student e-mail accounts, and posted throughout the school.
All degree students are required to complete CHUCS101as a corequisite with their first internship. Students will not receive a grade for their nternships until they complete and pass CHUCS101.
Recognizing the importance of learning by doing, CHU provides credit for experiential learning; CHU follows NACE criteria for determining if an experience can reasonably be defined as an internship:
On or before the census date in which an internship course begins, students must obtain signed internship course instructor approval and Director of Career Services approval, using the Colorado Heights University Internship Course/CPT Agreement form (available in the CHUCS office). Approval is based on the student having secured a position with an organization that meets internship criteria as reported by NACE and registration in the corequisite CHUCS101 course
Students may complete no more than one of their internship courses on campus. For all subsequent courses, students must obtain an internship off campus.
