How many credits can I earn?

  • If internship is approved and requirements are successfully met, academic credits are awarded based on number of hours worked at internship during the semester. 1 unit of credit is awarded for each 100 hours of internship work completed. However, Fall and Spring internships can only go up to 1 credit total for the semester.
