For Credit or Not for Credit, that is the Question.

You do not always need to receive credit to participate in an internship. Sometimes you can find an internship opportunity where you can learn about a field without taking a course at the same time.  Use these opportunities to build your skills and your resume.

Your internship opportunity might not require that you register for college credit while you participate.Be sure you ask if credit is required or optional.

If your internship opportunity requires that you co-register for a course to receive university credit while interning, consider all of your options:

  • If you are a Communication major in the School of Communication & Information, see our course option: 04:192:369.  This course can only be taken once.  For further options see below.
  •  If you are in the School of Arts and Sciences there are internship options:
  •  If you are in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences there is the SPIN program
