To receive credit from the University of Chicago, you must enroll in the Internship Practicum course using this form. There is a $150 registration fee for the course, so you should only enroll in the course if your employer requires proof of credit for employment. The registration fee is placed on your College bill. Internships carry 0.25 credits and are graded Pass/Fail only.
Your internship may occur during any quarter, but the Practicum is only offered during Summer Quarter. If you do an internship in the Fall, Winter, or Spring Quarters, the course will be placed on your transcript the following summer. As a result, students may only take the practicum once a year.
With the written approval of your internship supervisor, you may choose to withdraw from the course at any time, in which case a “W” will be recorded for the internship. To remove the course from your transcript, an additional $50 fee is required, and the $150 fee will refunded, prorated based on the date of registration.
Note that while this form is required for registration, it does not guarantee it. A Career Advancement staff member will reply to the form to confirm your enrollment.
