Academic Credit

Academic credit for an IE3 internship is provided by a professor on your home campus.

To receive academic credit you must:

  • Be enrolled as a student during your internship
  • Make arrangements to earn credit with a faculty member
  • Complete all registration documents required by the office of international programs on your campus.

The amount and type of credit you receive will depend on your goals, major, and graduation requirements. As a general guideline, internships earn one (academic quarter) credit for every 30 hours you work. Reporting requirements in the past have ranged from weekly journals to summary reports and class presentations. IE3 provides a handbook with recommended journal questions that you can use with your professor to arrange a report.
