THE ACADEMIC CREDIT PROCESS

The application process varies slightly according to the type of internship for which you are applying. All academic credit internships need the support of a professor who will act as a faculty sponsor. Your faculty sponsor should be from a department in the subject area of your internship. See below for information on the process, forms needed, and steps required to register your internship.

FINDING A SPONSOR

Find a faculty sponsor, a teaching faculty member from a department in the subject area of your internship.  

  • The faculty sponsor should be knowledgeable in the subject area of the internship.
  • He/she can be a full or part-time faculty member as long as they have a faculty appointment.
  • You may not choose a TA or GA. Depending on your program, adjunct professors may or may not serve as faculty sponsors for credit internships.

Responsibilities of a faculty sponsor include:

  • Assisting the student in determining the learning objectives, goals, activities and tasks of the internship, which should be included in the internship proposal form.
  • Being available to provide guidance throughout the duration of the internship.
  • Using assignments and evaluations to arrive at a final grade for the student’s experience.
