Internship Costs

All Internship Experience participants must apply to the IE program and complete EDHE 320 (Internship Exploration), EDHE 321 (Internship Preparation), and EDHE 322 (Internship Experience). Internship Experience courses do not have any additional costs to the participant unless the student exceeds 19 credits in the Spring semester.

 Atlanta, New York, and Washington, DC Cohort participants have housing and orientation costs associated with the program.

Participants choosing to enroll in additional coursework through Ole Miss Online or iStudy are responsible for additional tuition costs.

The Internship Experience offers a limited number of need- and merit-based scholarships. Scholarship recipients must have a current, completed FAFSA on file with UM’s Office of Financial to be awarded.
