Internship Registration & Academics

Registering Your Internship

Internships may be registered for zero, one, two, three, or four credits at Drew University and can fulfill the off-campus experience requirement or immersive experience requirement for Drew students. Follow the steps below to register and complete your internship to earn credits towards your degree.

  1. Complete the Internship Application Form to send us some basic information about your proposed internship and goals;
  2. After you’ve completed the form in the previous step, you’ll receive permission to register for the INTC-200 course. It is your responsibility to enroll in the course if you wish to receive credit for the internship. Instructions on how to register for classes in Treehouse can be found on the Registrar’s Office website.
  3. Complete the INTC-200 course requirements in Google Classroom. Note that all assignments must be completed by the posted deadlines in order for you to receive credit for your internship.

Credit Requirements

You are expected to work a set amount of hours depending on how many credits you are registered for. Only active work hours during the dates of the term you register for will count towards your minimum required hours:

  • 0 credits = 35 hours onsite
  • 1 credit = 35 hours onsite
  • 2 credits = 75 hours onsite
  • 3 credits = 120 hours onsite
  • 4 credits = 165 credits onsite

INTC-200 is a Pass/No-Credit course. A grade of Pass will be awarded after successful completion of course requirements by the course deadlines.

Summer and January internships are registered and recorded as a Summer or January course, but the credits will appear on your transcript during the following semester (provided all requirements have been met).
