Can I get academic credit for an internship? What are the requirements?
Yes, Trinity enables students to earn up to six academic credits for internships that complement their academic program. See "Academic Credit" page for more information.

How do I register for internship credit?
We recommend beginning the registration process 4-6 weeks before the internship begins. The process can take several weeks as it requires signatures from your course instructor, academic adviser, department chair, and site supervisor. The deadline for internship registration is fifteen business days after add/drop. See "Academic Credit" page for more information.

Can I get academic credit for a summer internship?
It is possible to enroll in credit during the summer, but in most cases we do not recommend it due to the high cost of tuition during the summer months. During the fall and spring semester there is no extra charge for tuition as long as you remain enrolled in the 12- 18 credit hour range.
