Steps to getting academic credit for an internship

Students are eligible to earn up to a total of 3 academic credits through the internship program. Undergraduates in their junior or senior year and graduate students are eligible to apply for up to three internship credits.

Students must receive approval for internship credits BEFORE internship hours are started. Internships are NOT approved retroactively. In other words, students cannot apply for credit for an internship that is already completed. All internships must receive prior approval to count toward academic credit.
