Instructions and Paperwork
Internship credit is granted by your academic department. Each department has a faculty coordinator who works with interns from that department. For the name of faculty coordinator in your department, contact the Career Center. If you are unable to get internship credit from your department, you may be eligible to receive credit through the Career Center.
- DO NOT assume that you will automatically receive credit! Provide your department’s internship coordinator with as much information as possible (company/department information, your job description or list of responsibilities, number of hours you will work, etc.). He or she will need this information to determine if you can receive credit and if so, how many credits you can receive.
- Carefully review your department's requirements for internship credit. Talk with the department's internship coordinator to get the information you need (i.e. quality of the tasks/projects to which you will be assigned, number of hours you will work, documentation of experience, assignments required to earn your credit, deadlines, etc.). If your internship does not qualify for academic credit within your department, you may wish to make an appointment with the Career Center office to inquire about internship credit under Interdisciplinary Studies (INTR).
Register for your internship credit just as you would for any academic course. Make sure you register for the internship credits for the semester that your internship will take place.
Most, but not all, internships are numbered 298, 398, 498, or 598. If the course is not listed in the time schedule, the department can open the course with a memo to the Registrar's Office. Some departments use other numbering for internships, so check with your academic department!
The Career Center requests that all interns register on Vandal CareerConnection, submit a learning agreement, mid & final evaluations, and have their employer submit an employer evaluation, all of which are available on our web page. If your department or company has similar paperwork for goal planning and evaluations, you may submit those instead. You and your academic adviser MUST agree on specific documentation prior to the beginning of the internship.
Typically, to earn internship credit a student must meet a minimum of 45 hours per credit.
45 hours = 1 credit
90 hours = 2 credits
135 hours =3 credits
