Zero-Credit Undergraduate Internships

Beginning summer 2014, the University Board of Trustees approved a new program intended to reduce the cost for undergraduate students who participate in full-time internships during a semester but earn no academic credit.  Program parameters are the following:

  • Undergraduate students only are eligible; graduate students enrolled in the courses are charged the applicable program tuition.
  • Cost is $200 tuition plus the applicable semester’s General Fee.
  • Special rate applies if student is enrolled in ONLY the internship course at 0 credits for the applicable semester.
  • Students in a zero-credit internship only are reported as full-time for loan deferral purposes.
  • University student health insurance is not automatically charged or provided during the semester of the internship.  Students should contact the University Student Health Insurance Office to discuss possible opportunities to purchase an extension of insurance coverage.
