To receive academic credit for your internship (practicum, field experience or apprenticeship), you must register your internship with UMF’s Registrar. This is the form you must use to do so. Simply print a copy of this form, take it to a faculty member or your faculty advisor to get it completed, signed, and submitted to the Registrar. Remember to keep a copy for your records!
Academic credit for internships requires faculty approval. Please note that approval of academic credit must be obtained before you begin your internship, so please get your faculty member involved early in the process – we suggest doing this when you submit your application. Contact your faculty advisor to discuss the internship opportunity and request approval to receive academic credit.
When you get academic credit for your internship, it is monitored and graded by faculty and takes the place of a class or classes. Please note that students are required to pay UMF for any credits they receive for performing their internship at the same credit hour rate as you pay for a class.
It is very important that UMF is able to track all types of community engagement – including any time that you volunteer in the community. To let us know where you are volunteering and the frequency of your service, simply complete and submit this short online form.
