Internship for Academic Credit
What is an Academic Internship?
Academic internships earn academic credit while career internships do not earn academic credit. Internships which are taken for academic credit require tuition payment in the same way as any course. There is no charge for internships not taken for academic credit. Hoping to receive academic credit for an internship? Visit the Institute for Civic and Community Engagement website to learn more.
