Academic Credit

Student Studying

In most cases, students may be able to receive academic credit for performing an internship. Depending on a student’s major and current progress toward their degree, individuals may be eligible for course credit specific to an area of study or as general elective credit. This varies depending on the structure of an academic department. Some departments require internships as a part of their graduation requirements.

ScholarshipS

While many internships are paid and do not require a lot of travel expenses, students may discover that there are some additional costs associated with an internship that need to be considered. Factors such as the cost of performing an out-of-state or international internship, unpaid internships, and time away from a current job to perform the internship may present some financial challenges. At UVU we offer a limited amount of scholarship opportunities to help students with these costs. After all, we want all of our students interested in doing an internship, to engage in some great opportunities!
