Credit Guidelines

  1. Students may earn one (1) hour of elective credit for each summer INT 92g internship completed. The credit may be applied as general credit toward graduation but will not count toward fulfillment of major requirements. The maximum number of Internship-credit hours a student may may place on their undergraduate transcript (through fall, spring, and summer terms) as specified in the Brandeis University Bulletin, is eight (8) in total.
  2. Brandeis students wanting to enroll in more than 8 credits of academic internships must petition to do so from the Registrar.
  3. Students may only receive credit for any INT 92g Internship experience once.  Hence, students may not perform 100 hours at an internship site during the summer, receive 1-Credit for an INT 92g and then use that same 100-hour internship experience to receive credit in an 89 or 92a/b internship course.
  4. INT 92g 1-Credit internship Learning Agreements must be approved by a designee of the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences BEFORE registration.  Students must register for INT 92g through the Rabb Summer School  BEFORE the internship begins (by June 24 2011). No retroactive credit will be granted. 
  5. Brandeis International students must also receive CPT clearance BEFORE beginning the internship.
  6. Any student wishing to withdraw from INT 92g MUST obtain prior approval from the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences before terminating the internship.  International students wishing to withdraw from INT 92g MUST obtain prior approval from the ISSO BEFORE terminating the internship. Not doing so could cause a violation of your visa status and have serious consequences.
  7. Students should transfer the 1-credit from their summer school transcript to their regular transcript through the Registrar’s Office.
