    CIP II

    CIP II is a continuation of the Career Intern Program. All first semester students who are eligible to continue their career exploration studies and observations are invited by the program coordinator to work additional hours and learn. This is a very select group of students. Attendance, assignment completion, and class participation are an important part of getting into this class.

    Prerequisite: Participation in the first semester career intern class.
