|Register your Internship for Credit|
The Center for Career Development coordinates the registration of undergraduate student internships for credit. Below are the policies and procedures for doing so.
Graduate student internships are registered for credit through each academic program. Graduate students should contact their Program Directors to inquire (and Tell Us About Your Internship, because we love to know!)
Please Contact Us with any questions.
International Students must inform the Office of International Student Services (OISS) of any internship to obtain approval and work authorization.
See F-1 Student Internships for more information.
Complete the Internship Course Request Form with all of the details of your internship, including supervisor contact information and expected responsibilities. You will be notified by the CCD if your request is accepted, and you will be emailed a personalized Learning Agreement for approval by certain faculty and staff.
Students usually register for internships under their major departments and must secure a Faculty Internship Advisor from that department. They may also do one internship outside the department for interdisciplinary credit. Faculty Internship Advisors will sign off on the internship, advise the student during the Internship course, and submit a grade for the course. Not every professor is authorized to be a Faculty Internship Advisor. Contact the CCD or your major department if you need assistance in obtaining a Faculty Internship Advisor.
During Fall and Spring Semesters all students receiving credit for their Internships must attend a mandatory Mid-Semester Check-in Meeting at the CCD and submit an evaluation of their internship experience so far. These are group sessions of 5-10 students and last approximately 30 minutes. During Summer and Winter sessions, only evaluations are collected; students are not required to attend meetings. If you have any concerns prior to or after your meeting/evaluation, contact the CCD immediately so we can assist you.
The deadline to register an internship is the Add/Drop deadline set by the Registrar for the given semester. Extensions to register past the Add/Drop deadline may be granted on an individual basis. Contact the CCD for information.
As for-credit Internships are registered as courses through the Registrar’s office, students must pay per-credit tuition if they wish to receive credit for their Summer or Winter Internship. Contact the Registrar’s Office or Student Accounts for pricing details.
Students may earn 1 - 3 credits for an Internship course. The number of credits for the course is chosen by the student (following the minimum requirements below) at the time of registration. The number of credits earned for an Internship course may not be changed (increased or decreased) after the Add/Drop deadline. If students believe extenuating circumstances apply, they should consult the CCD for assistance.
During the semester of the internship, students must work a minimum of 40 hours per credit earned. This is a minimum requirement for credit and does not dictacte the student's work schedule.
Please make sure you are on track to fulfill this hour requirement:
