Academic Credit for Internship Experience
If you are interested in receiving academic credit for an internship experience, first
consult with your academic advisor. If your department does not offer academic credit
for an internship experience, or you are maxed out on your internship hours within
your major, you may choose to enroll in ELC 4000-Community Internship course that
is available for all majors.
ELC 4000 - Community Internship (3-6 semester hours) offers extensive professional preparation as an intern in a community setting that
may limit student's enrollment in other courses.
Prerequisite: Permission of student's academic advisor. Note: Students enrolled in UNIV 4000 are
considered to be full time students for enrollment certification purposes. If you
have questions concerning your eligibility for aid, please contact DebraAnn Brown,
Associate Director, Financial Aid and Scholarships at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The completed learning contract must be approved by your internship site supervisor
and your academic advisor. Once these documents have been reviewed and approved, you
will then receive a permit to register for ELC 4000.
To request a leave of absence, submit a Personal or Medical Leave of Absence Request form and supporting documents to the Scholarship Office in 107 Wilder Tower.
