FCBE students have the opportunity to earn academic credit for internships that are
related to their majors. These internships are approved by departmental faculty and
once approved, student interns work with a faculty internship advisor within their
major for their internship coursework. Internship courses are graded on a letter
grade scale (A, B, C, D) and follow the same requirements as other academic courses
for grading and drop deadlines. Registration is by permit only.
To apply for internship academic credit, please follow the steps below.
