If you are interested in obtaining an internship position, you can review the list of internship positions maintained on the Rockwell Career Services and University Career Services Center web site. Most large and midsize accounting firms make offers for student internships one year in advance of the internship start date.
Some internship positions listed on the web site may not qualify for internship credit. It is your responsibility to ensure that the internship position meets the requirements outlined below.
Internships are designed to provide you real accounting experience while completing your academic coursework. You may obtain accounting course credit for work that is directly related to accounting and meets the criteria specified by the Texas Uniform Certified Public Accounting Examination in Section 511.57(D) of the Public Accountancy Act of 1991. The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy will recognize only three hours of internship toward the 30 hours accounting hours required to take the CPA examination. Additional information is available at the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy website under Exam/Qualification link to Application of Intent, www.tsbpa.state.tx.us
The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy emphasizes that the knowledge gained during an internship position must be equal to or greater than the knowledge that would have been gained in a traditional accounting course. In the spirit of this requirement, internship positions must meet the following eligibility criteria:
Professional Program in Accounting (PPA) and Master Program in Accounting (MS ACCY) students should contact Dr. Michael Newman at email@example.com for questions regarding course credit for their internship.
You must register for internship credit prior to performing the internship. Credit may not be received ex post facto. You must retain a copy of each item for your personal records and provide evidence of all items if requested by the TSBPA. Failure to comply with any condition will result in your withdrawal from the course without a refund.
