Students who wish to earn academic credit for their internship must first verify that they meet all of the pre-requisites to enroll in their department's internship course. Please schedule an appointment for internship credit approval with a career coach in the Office of Career Services to confirm eligibility to earn academic credit for an internship, and learn about how to begin the internship credit approval process. You will be provided with next steps at your career services appointment to try and get the internship approved for academic credit within your department.
Each major has specific guidelines and requirements that students must meet in order to obtain academic credit for an internship experience. Consult with career services and your faculty internship coordinator to confirm prerequisites.
