Earn Academic Credit
Involve Your Academic Department Early!
Include your academic advisor/departmental internship coordinator early in your thoughts and plans. Your department will determine if the internship is substantial enough to earn credit.
Should I Do An Internship For Credit?
Consult with your academic advisor to see how an internship can fit into your course of study. Remember, per university policy, a student must have and maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA to have an internship.
How Do I Earn Academic Credit For My Internship?
Your department has the authority to approve your internship for credit. Remember to involve your academic advisor/internship coordinator in the selection of your internship options. Plan ahead so you have plenty of time in which to complete all the necessary requirements for enrollment. As with all academic credit, you will pay AppState tuition and fees.

What Do I Need To Do?
You will receive instructions from your department on how to start the approval process for your internship.
May I Decide Later If I Want To Earn Credit?
No. Internship credit cannot be granted retroactively. Prior approval from your academic department is absolutely necessary.
