Undergraduate Internships: Unpaid Internships/Course Credit
BA 2191– Intended for Students who are required to earn credit for their internship
Internships are not a required component of the curriculum at Fisher; therefore students do not receive credit for doing internships. The Office Career Management does offer a course that students can enroll in if their internship employer requires them to earn credit, or for international students doing CPT(Curricular Practical Training). BA 2191 is taught in an independent-study format and students must complete a series of assignment related to their internship.
The majority of internships completed by Fisher students are paid and the Office of Career Management encourages all employers to pay their interns.
How to enroll in BA 2191:
Schedule an appointment with a Career Management staff member in 150 Gerlach (292-6024) and bring documentation from your employer stating that you must receive credit.
Information about BA 2191 options
Beginning Spring 2013 BA 2191 will be offered for a full semester at 1 credit hour. Students who will only be interning for part of the semester will also have the option to enroll in the class for one 7 week session (1/2 credit hour), either Session 1 or Session 2 depending on when your internship takes place.
