Academic Credit for Internships

Internships are valuable experiences. It is possible to get academic credit for internships whether they are paid or unpaid. The steps for getting credit vary within each of the  schools at WashU.

For students in the McKelvey School of Engineering & Applied Science, or the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, consult the Academic Credit & Internships handout (PDF).

For students in the College of Arts & Sciences, follow the guidelines at Arts & Sciences Policies and Procedures Internship Credit. When longer-term internships are not available, there may be a possibility of earning credit for related micro-internships. Please contact Dean Matt DeVoll for more information.

Details about the academic credit process for students enrolled in the Olin School of Business can be found through the MGT 450A-Internship in Business document (PDF).
