Question: Do I Want to Receive Internship Credit?
Answer: Internship credit can offer experiences that are rewarding and geared specifically toward academic coursework. Colleges usually require a faculty sponsor or campus liaison to set parameters to ensure specific criteria is followed when receiving internship credit. Your sponsor may require a journal, paper, or presentation to fulfill the academic component of the internship. Check out your college's guidelines for doing an internship for credit and be sure to apply early to meet college deadlines. Internship credit is usually included in the regular tuition of a college curriculum but summer internships may require a per credit hour fee paid to the college.
