Register and Earn Credit

To earn academic credit for an internship at Nazareth College, you need to:

  1. Discuss your internship with your departmental advisor and the assistant director of internships
    Keep them in the loop! If you have found or created an internship on your own, you want to ensure it will be approved for credit.

  2. Fill out an Internship Approval Form or Summer Internship Approval Form with your advisor
    Turn it in to the Internship Office in the Center for Life's Work, GAC 104.

  3. Register for the appropriate internship class via NazNet
    If you have questions about which class to register for, talk to your advisor and the appropriate assistant director of internships. The summer internship registration process is different – you'll need to complete the approval form (above) first! There are a limited number of 2-credit summer internship scholarships available. Contact Dale Leyburn (SOM) or Emily Marchese (CAS) for details if you plan to complete your experience in the summer.
  4. Watch for emails
    Dale Leyburn or Emily Marchese, the Assistant Directors of the Internship Program, will send you directions and important dates.

  5. Fill out a Site Agreement Form with your internship supervisor
    Complete this BEFORE you begin your internship, or on the first day. Submit this form to the Naz Internship Office in the Center for Life's Work, GAC 104.
