Earning Academic Credit

All FCBE majors who meet the eligibility requirements have the option of earning academic credit through internships related to their major. Once you receive an internship offer, you should begin the process of applying for credit. You must apply for academic credit BEFORE starting your internship work assignment, as credit is NOT given after an internship is begins.

The content of your internship must be approved by the assigned departmental faculty internship supervisor. If approved for credit, your faculty internship advisor will give you an end-of-semester assignment to complete. Internship courses are graded on a letter scale (A, B, C, D).

Tuition is required, as with any other course in the curriculum, and registration/add/drop requirements also apply..

To complete your application, you will be REQUIRED to upload the following documents: 1) official offer letter, 2) job description, and 3) unofficial transcript so be sure you have these available when you begin the process.

If your academic credit request is approved, you will receive a permit via email to register for the appropriate course.

NOTE: Academic internships are required in the Supply Chain Management major, Entrepreneurship and Social Media minors, and Management HR concentration.

If your internship is not related to your major and you would like to pursue academic credit as an internship elective course, or you have a non-profit internship that requires academic credit, ask your advisor about BA 4811 elective internship credit (letter grade) or ELC 4000 university internship course (pass/fail).
