Emory College of Arts and Sciences Summer Internship Program
Summer internships frequently require that students enroll for internship credit at their university. In order to assist students facing this requirement, Emory College offers a one-credit hour summer course. This one-hour S/U credit will not count towards the hours needed to graduate from Emory College, but it will appear on your transcript and fulfill federal labor requirements. Emory charges tuition for this non-academic credit, but the net cost to currently enrolled College students will be only $50.00. To be eligible for this course, students must meet the following criteria:
1. Be a current student in Emory College of Arts and Sciences or Oxford College. Business school or students from all other schools are not eligible to participate. Students who have graduated are not eligible to participate.
2. Be in good academic standing. Students on academic probation are not permitted to participate.
3. Secure an internship that involves full-time work for at least three weeks (40 hours/week), half-time work for six weeks (20 hours/week) or an equivalent level of effort. We recommend that you seek internships involving meaningful work related to your long-term career goals.
4. You may not be enrolled in other Emory summer courses.
5. International Students should consult with ISSS office http://www.emory.edu/isss or http://www.emory.edu/isss/students/Employment/index.html. In general this non-academic internship credit is intended for students who need to have this credit applied to their transcript for work they complete during the summer.
To enroll in this internship course, Click here to download an application (PDF) for non-academic summer internship credit. Please return the completed application and your $50.00 check to the office for Undergraduate Education, 300 White Hall. You may also pick up an application outside of 300 White Hall. We do not accept cash or credit cards. The Office for Undergraduate Education will review your form and your eligibility for the internship course. After review, students approved to participate will be given a letter to your supervisor confirming that you will be enrolled for credit. Those not approved will have their check returned.
When you are enrolled in the summer internship course, your account will be charged for tuition, but you will receive a grant in the exact amount of the tuition charges. The $50.00 fee will be the only cost to you. This course was set up specifically to address the needs of students completing internships in the summer who did not want to pay tuition but were required to receive academic credit. This course is NOT available during the regular academic year or for the purpose of fulfilling academic requirements for a major or minor. Because of the way this course is set up, you may not enroll in other summer courses at the same time. If there are extenuating circumstances that require that you be enrolled, please consult with Dean Joanne Brzinski about other ways to accomplish these two needs.
If you need to complete an internship requirement as a part of your major or minor, you should not enroll in this internship course, which carries no credit toward graduation. You will need to enroll in a departmental course which generally involves academic work related to your internship in addition to the experiential component.
