Practice Credit Requirement
To graduate from the School of Hotel Administration and receive the Bachelor of Science degree, students must fulfill the Practice Credit requirement and submit verification thereof prior to registering for their second-to-last semester. To complete this requirement, students must work a minimum of two 400-hour units (paid or unpaid) in the hospitality industry with a minimum of two separate employment periods. Typically, this requirement is fulfilled in two summers. However, part-time employment is accepted. Upon completion of this requirement, the designation “Practice Credit-Complete” will appear on the student’s Cornell transcript.
