Resources for Faculty & Staff

Pasadena City College offers work experience/internship courses, known as BUS070A and BUS070B. Faculty who are interested in teaching a work experience/internship course can follow this step-by-step process.

  • Step 1: Faculty who are interested in teaching a work experience/internship course must get approval from their division dean first. Each division is responsible for compensating faculty a rate of $200 per student enrolled in the course.
  • Step 2: Students must secure a job/internship to be eligible for a work experience/internship course. Students need to provide a copy of their job/internship offer letter to an Internship Developer at the Freeman Center for Career & Completion. The offer letter needs to include the following information to gain approval for the work experience/internship course:
    • supervisors name, email, and phone number
    • the organization’s name and address
    • the job/internship start date and end date  
    • total job/internship hours per week
  • Step 3: The job/internship opportunity is vetted by an Internship Developer at the Freeman Center for Career and Completion to ensure compliance with our District’s employment guidelines. Internship Developers are responsible for communicating discrepancies directly with the employer partner.
  • Step 4: One the employment opportunity has been approved by an Internship Developer, the faculty member will be notified and can move forward with creating a course section. Internship Developers will provide guidance on the number of units a student is eligible for based on the information provided in the employment offer letter.
  • Step 5: The faculty member will provide the Course Reference Number (CRN) and add code to the Internship Developer. The internship Developer will communicate this information to the student via email, and the faculty member will be copied in the message.
  • Step 6: The Internship Developer will help process worksite agreements with the employment host site.
  • Step 7: The faculty will be responsible for collecting the required documents for the work experience/internship course, including but not limited to:
    • Student learning agreements
    • Weekly Time Logs
    • Student evaluations
    • Employer evaluations
