Academic Credit for Internship Experience
If you are interested in receiving academic credit for an internship experience, first consult with your academic advisor. If your department does not offer academic credit for an internship experience, you may choose to enroll in UNIV 4000.
UNIV 4000 - Community Internship (3-6 semester hours) Extensive professional preparation as an intern in a community setting that may limit student's enrollment in other courses. Prerequisite: Permission of student's department chair. Note: Students enrolled in UNIV 4000 are considered to be full time students for enrollment certification purposes.
Generally, students enrolled in UNIV 4000 will maintain full time status for purposes of financial aid, repayment of loans, parents' insurance, and scholarships. However, the federal government requires that Pell Grant recipients must be enrolled in at least 12 credits a semester to be considered full-time for aid purposes.
If you have questions concerning your eligibility for aid, please contact April Tyson, Associate Director, Financial Aid and Scholarships at firstname.lastname@example.org.
