Internship Credit

The following explains the policy on internship credits for CALS students.

The college's internship program gives undergraduates a chance to see how they can use what they have learned in an on-the-job setting. By enrolling under a special course number (Coordinative Internship/Cooperative Education 399) students can earn 1–8 credits per semester if approved by the advisor and field supervisor. A total of 8 internship credits may be applied toward graduation. A number of agencies and corporations conduct formal training programs or internships for students before or immediately following graduation. Students are allowed diverse experiences and at the end of the internship may become a permanent employee. Students must have approval of a CALS advisor and complete a learning contract prior to registration for internship credits. Interested students should contact either the CALS Career Services Office at career@cals.wisc.edu or their advisor.
