Academic and EL Credit

Academic Credit

Steps to Pursuing Academic Credit for your Internship:

1. You must obtain departmental approval to receive academic credit for your internship. Contact your departmental internship coordinator for information regarding internship credit and follow their internship process.

2. CAES MUST have a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with your internship site. You will work with your departmental internship coordinator to complete the MOU, unless there is a current MOU in place. Please reference the list of MOUs below. 


Experiential Learning Credit

In order to fulfill the experiential learning requirement with an internship, you must follow one of the three pathways listed below:

  • Participate in one of the CAES sponsored internships (Congressional Ag Fellows, Georgia Legislative Internship, Winegrowers of Georgia Internship and UGA Extension Internship). Students may also enroll in an internship course while participating in one of these internships.
  • Secure an internship with a company and enroll in your departmental internship course.
  • Apply for a pre-approved internship program through Engage Georgia. Select "Agricultural and Environmental Sciences" to see programs approved for CAES students.
  • Secure an internship with a company and apply for the CAES Industry and Professionals Internship program before you begin interning. This program has additional requirements that allow you to receive EL credit without enrolling in a course. A Memorandum of Understanding must be signed that formalizes the role and expectations of the students and employer with regard to the experiential learning and academic learning outcomes of the internship. A link to the MOU is in the student guide above.
