Steps to request academic credit for an internship

  2. Submit an Application for Academic Credit in Handshake. The faculty member running your course will be sent your application for their approval.
  3. Register for the 499 or 690 internship course within your major. The PDE and CDE do not require initial registration. A registration code will be emailed to you. (View Class Terms & Requirements)
