Internship for Credit

Career and Professional Development offers one Experiential Learning (EXP) credit for qualifying summer internships. Internships are an opportunity to engage in professional development, further career exploration, and/or refine professional interests. Students must work a minimum of 140 hours over no fewer than four weeks. Internships may be paid or unpaid and remote internships may qualify. Students who have received credit in the past may earn additional credit each summer before graduation. Retroactive credit for prior internships is not available.

CPD 451 requires instructor consent. To request consent, carefully review the course syllabus available in Handshake (under Resources -> CPD 451), and submit an application at After instructor consent is granted, students must register for CPD 451 in Self-Service preferably before their internship begins but no later than July 1.
