Step 1: Know the Credits
The amount of credits you earn in the course depends on the amount of time you spend at your internship site (1 internship credit is equal to 60 intern-ship hours). You may split up the 3 required credits among semesters.
For example, you may take 1 credit during the fall semester at one internship site and 2 during the spring semester at a different internship site. You may repeat the course for a maximum of 6 credits.
Determine how many credits you are going to take for the upcoming semester. When deciding the total number of credits to take for RHS 4890, check with
your faculty advisor first to confirm that you will have enough upper-division credits (40 minimum) to graduate. Remember, you must complete 60 internship hours for each registered credit hour. There is a grade penalty for not reaching the internship hours you initially committed. Therefore, it is important that you have enough room in your schedule for the amount of internship hours decide to take.
