How to Earn Credit for Your Experience

In addition to the fantastic experience, skills, references, etc. that an internship will provide, you can also arrange for academic credit!  There are strict guidelines and protocol if you want credit for your internship, and these guidelines are listed through the Center for Experiential Learning.

*Important:  just because you find an internship through programs like Handshake or CareerShift does NOT mean it is credit-bearing.  Wondering if your opportunity can count for credit? Contact Tina Buckingham, Site Coordinator with the Center for Experiential Learning, at christina.buckingham@oswego.edu or (315) 312-3693. You ALWAYS need to work with the Center for Experiential Learning well before your internship begins to obtain credit.
