Non-Credit Internships

Students considering time away from Northwestern, for whatever reason, might look into pursuing a non-credit internship, either for pay or as a volunteer. This can be an especially good way to spend your summer break. The best on-campus source of information for non-credit internships is Northwestern Career Advancement.

Earning academic credit

Weinberg College awards academic credit only for internships with academic content offered by a Weinberg department or program and approved by the Curricular Review Committee. Find approved for-credit internships.

Sometimes a student hopes to do a non-credit internship and is told by the sponsoring organization that he or she can’t do the internship unless the school gives academic credit for it.
