HOW TO GET ACADEMIC CREDIT
Students have the opportunity to do one of each:
Internship Elective and/or Senior Internship. We will be posting any direct contact we receive per an internship here. Full-time opportunities will be listed with the Career Services office and web site.
As of Fall 2015, there have been some changes in the policies around co-ops and internships. If you’re planning to work and hoping to get credit, you’ll need to read the details on this page. Direct your questions to GD Program Chair Carol Fillip: firstname.lastname@example.org or Career Services Coordinator Gretchen Burrito: email@example.com.
Following are the new additions to the internship policy:
Students may work at an internship and earn course credit during the fall or spring semester of senior year, or during summer between junior/senior year. Students will register and earn the credit during the same term as their work experience. Please note that because internships carry course credits, tuition will be assessed. For summer work, students need to be registered for Summer Tiger Term.
Please fill out these forms and hand them over to your advisor for approval:
