Internship for credit process

If you are seeking approval to earn credit for an internship, remember that you must touch base with your faculty internship advisor and/or The Exchange before the internship begins. For a full breakdown of the process of obtaining credit approval for an internship in the Byrum School of Business, see our How to register a business internship for credit handout. The new approval process for the school of business is initiated by the student by filling out an Experience Request form on Handshake. 

Request an appointment with an Exchange career coach for additional help gaining internship approval.
