Some employers offer internships in which you can earn academic credit. This can only be granted by the department of your major and is generally supervised by either a faculty member or internship coordinator. Be sure to check with them early in the process so you don’t miss any deadlines. Your academic department will decide whether or not you receive academic credit for an internship. Each department also has differing requirements that need to be met for eligibility. It is essential that you contact your academic advisor prior to the start of your internship program if you wish to receive credit.
Colleges' Internship Coordinators
Some colleges at UTSA have their own internship coordinator or internship web page which can assist you with locating an internship or provide guidelines as to what is expected in an internship.
