Approve a Student’s Internship for Credit

Students who are pursuing an internship to earn academic credit will need to get the assigned professor’s approval and the professor will then submit a completed individualized instruction approval form to Academic Records. Download the form as a PDF.

Faculty Information

Whether an internship originates from our office or your department, we can partner with you to ensure that our internships include academic components and projects to meet your department’s requirements.

Refer students to our office to talk with them about their interests, skills, and learning objectives. We then assist them in developing the tools and resources they need to successfully find and apply for an internship, including customizing their resume/profile and cover letter. Our office also coordinates the Summer Fellowship Funding process.
