Do accounting internships count toward accounting hours?

The limitation of three hours of internship or life-experience credit toward meeting the accounting requirement and three hours of internship in business refers to credit earned outside the usual classroom venue that is posted on a transcript.  If a candidate has attended a college that awards credit based on evaluation of work and life experience, accounting credits from that evaluation process are limited to three semester hours.  The same applies to accounting internships and business internships.  ALL internship hours count toward the 150 semester hour requirement.
