For-credit, Including Zero-credit Option, Undergraduate Research Internships

Students who enroll in an undergraduate research opportunity for credit, including a zero-credit option, must sign up for an appropriate course. Many departments already have such courses, most of which are listed below.

Faculty who wish to offer academic credit for a research opportunity should contact the department chair for approval to use. Please note that Columbian College has a general course number—CCAS 3001—for students in the arts and sciences, though it may be preferable to offer credit at the departmental level.

If your department does not have an internship course credit, contact your department about creating one.
