Academic Credit for Internships and Co-ops
How to Apply and Course Assignments
Students who want to apply for academic credit must complete and submit the Internship/Co-op Application for Academic Credit. Once the course has been registered and paid for, students are responsible for completing the required assignments by the appropriate deadline. Please see the syllabus below for details.
INSTRUCTIONS AND APPLICATION- FALL 2014
COURSE SYLLABUS- FALL 2014
Note: Applications must be completed and submitted before starting the internship or co-op. Credit can only be earned in the semester that the internship is taking place. No credit will be granted for past internships/co-ops.
Credit is not guaranteed and approval should be received prior to starting.
A completed application contains the following:
- Application- Forms C1 and C2
- Internship/Co-op Offer Letter
- Job Description
Major elective credit can only be earned one time in a student's academic career for a 3 credit internship. The focus of the internship must be in the student's major (i.e. Accounting Major/Accounting Internship) and only a maximum of 3 major elective credits can be earned, even with a 6 credit co-op.
Any credit earned for an internship after the first 3 credit internship will only count as free elective credit.
1 and 2 credit internships do not count towards major elective credit and cannot be combined to equal 3 credits towards major electives.
A maximum of 6 credits can be earned at one company for an internship or co-op pending approval. A maximum of 9 credits can be earned towards a(n) internship/co-op in a student's academic career.
You may need to meet with your academic advisor via appointment, or via e-mail to discuss the probability of securing an internship and how it might affect your course selection/graduation.
If applying for credit, please make sure to allow at least 5-7 business days for processing.
The final deadlines for the submission of applications are listed below. No late applications will be accepted. No exceptions.
Fall 2014 Deadline: September 9, 2014
Payment for Internship or Co-op Course
During the Fall and Spring semesters, an internship or a co-op course is part of your tuition bill if you are registered for 12 credits or more (including the internship or co-op.)
If you are a part time student (11 credits or less including the internship) you will have to pay per credit for the internship or co-op.
Summer Session payments for internships are by credit only. Co-ops are only registered during the Fall and Spring semesters and do not apply to Summer Session.
Dates for summer session payments can be found on the summer session website: http://summer.newark.rutgers.edu/2014-registration-calendar/
Note: You cannot receive credit for the course if you have not paid your term bill. If you are dropped from the course for non-payment, you will not be allowed to register for the course again for that semester. There are no exceptions.
