Earn Credit

The Office of Internships and Experiential Learning staff completes academic registrations for approved students within university drop/add deadlines. Earning academic credit for an internship involves an overall process which includes the following components.

Tell Us About Your Internship 

Once you have secured an internship offer, your first step is to tell us about it. A detailed internship description must be submitted for our review in order to determine credit eligibility. 

Follow These Academic Registration Steps

Easy step-by-step guide

  1. Log in to BizLink, click "Report My Internship" from your list of shortcuts, complete and save the Main Form.

  2. Our staff will review all internship reports for approval.

  3. Once approved, we will email your employer and instruct them to complete the Management by Objectives Contract (MBO). You will be copied on that email.

  4. Coordinate with your employer, as you and the employer are both required to read, complete and sign the MBO.

  5. Submit the completed MBO to our office. International students must also submit an offer letter (see below). 

  6. We complete your course registration for three academic credits. The course will appear on your UBLearns account, but keep in mind that you will submit all internship assignments through BizLink.
