How to Earn Academic Internship Credit

In many, but not all, cases students complete credit-bearing internships. These may take the form of the dedicated internship course in an academic unit of the College, a UIP course offered through the Career Center, or an independent study course. There are two main ways to make sure that you are able to earn credit while doing an internship.

Check with your faculty advisor

In departments or programs that include internship courses in their course catalog, enrollment in such a course alongside your internship, according to your program's guidelines, will allow you to earn credit for the internship. Check with your faculty advisor about how the credit will apply to your degree progress.


Take a University Internship Program class

You can also take a University Internship Program class alongside your internship. UIP courses are approved for Experiential Learning Credit.
