Register for Credit

Registering your internship for academic 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 note: all internships must meet the parameters set by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

To register 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: 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. Together, complete a Learning Agreement worksheet (PDF version) You will use the information on this sheet to complete the electronic Google Form mentioned in step five.

Step 4: Review the Learning Agreement with your supervisor at your internship site. Ensure your learning objectives match their expectations for what you can accomplish at your internship.

Step 5: Submit the online Learning Agreement via this link.
