Register for Credit

Registering for credit is a step-by-step process, which can take up to two weeks to complete. Therefore, we recommend that you start this process prior to the start of the semester in which you are applying for credit.

Please follow these steps:

Step 1: Meet with your academic advisor to determine the course and the number of credits that will support your academic program and help you advance toward graduation. (Remember, you typically have two options: credit in your major OR general elective credit)

Step 2: Locate a faculty sponsor who will be assisting you through the learning portion of your internship. For assistance identifying a faculty sponsor, contact us at

Step 3: Complete the academic internship Learning Agreement worksheet (PDF version) The worksheet is a tool for you to record all pertinent information you will later input electronically. You are not required to hand it in.

Step 4: Meet with your faculty sponsor to confirm what will be expected of you to earn the credits you plan to register for and be sure your opportunity will meet those expectations.

Step 5: Review the Learning Agreement with your supervisor at your internship. Ensure your learning objectives match their expectations for what you can accomplish at your internship.

Step 6: Submit the online Learning Agreement via this link.
