Yes. PRTM and Sport Management students enroll in PRT 375, Orientation to Internship, a one hour class which prepares students for their internship. The department maintains an active internship and job listing site that students can use to find an internship. PGM students work with the PGM Internship Coordinator to secure their work experiences and PGM Internships.
Not always. If agencies pay, wage amounts vary according to the agency and extra benefits provided. For example, an agency may pay $10/hr. and offer staff clothing, but not offer housing. Another facility may pay $8/hr., offer housing for a small monthly fee, and provide staff clothing. Each internship varies.
Sometimes. Some agencies have housing for student interns for a small monthly fee. Others may not have housing onsite, but may work with agency or community members to provide housing. Agencies that do not offer housing usually work with students to assist in finding housing during their work experience. Students are usually housed together when more than one intern is working at an agency in order to reduce expenses.
(PRTM / SMT) Yes, if you are a summer intern, but it will depend on your status at NCSU whether you are considered full time if you intern in the fall or spring. Students should speak with the internship coordinator for guidance. Tuition will be paid for 8 hours of academic credit.
(PGM) Yes. All PGM students perform a “cooperative work experience” and tuition is paid based on the co-op fee as opposed to the number of credit hours given an internship.
No. Students select the residence hall of their choice by going to University Housing.

It is not recommended for first year students to have a car on campus. NC State is primarily a pedestrian campus and it is recommended that students walk, bike, skateboard, rollerblade, or use the Wolfline bus service. The Wolfline travels around main campus and between the main, centennial and veterinary medicine campuses. Students wanting to investigate purchasing a parking permit are encouraged to review University Transportation’s site.
