Internship Credit

Internships are supervised work experiences either on or off campus and are related to your academic interests and career goals. As an Information Systems major, students may apply a cumulative maximum of 3 units of academic credit for internship work toward the undergraduate degree. IS students arrange their own internship by obtaining an IS faculty sponsor who defines the academic component of work, monitors progress, and assigns a final grade. Students also need to have a work site supervisor willing to communicate with the faculty sponsor and provide an evaluation of work before a final grade is assigned.  Students may apply for 1 unit, 2 units or 3 units of credit for an IS internship.  Information Systems internships will be graded on a pass/fail basis only.

Permission for registering and receiving credit is given after the Application for Internship Credit for is completed and submitted to the Information Systems Academic Advisor who will then add the internship course to your schedule of classes.

Applications for internship credit must be submitted before the first day of classes of the semester in which the student will have the internship. See Application for Internship Credit to view complete details.
