Academic Credit for Internships

The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs offers academic and audit credit for unpaid internships. Students can earn only audit credit for paid internships.

Audit Credit

Nunn School students participating in full or part-time paid/unpaid internships are eligible for up to twelve credits of audit credit. The tuition-free audit credit allows students to remain enrolled full-time while interning, and the internship is recorded on the student transcript. See the Division of Professional Practice for details about enrolling in the Georgia Tech Internship Program and about getting audit credit for an internship.

Academic Credit

Nunn School students participating in full or part-time unpaid internships may earn up to three credits for their internship experience. Students are responsible for paying tuition for the academic unpaid internship credit.

Academic credit is awarded for an internship that provides a structured learning experience that addresses learning outcomes and contributes to the student's intellectual and personal growth. The internship should provide opportunities to apply formal classroom knowledge, and practical perspective which relates to the major and develops the student's strengths.

Follow the directions on the form to set up the internship credit. This credit, that is listed as either INTA 4901 (undergraduate) or INTA 8901 (graduate), can count as an INTA elective or free elective.
