Internships

The College of General Studies offers students the opportunity to receive one credit for internships that require academic credit. Students will be billed for the credit, if applicable. (As always, if a CGS student does not have a 3.0 cumulative GPA or above and is registered for over 18 credits, s/he will be billed for the overload credit.)

Credit will appear as course “CGS SS200: Internship” on student transcripts. CGS SS200 DOES NOT fulfill a degree requirement at Boston University and DOES NOT count toward graduation.

CGS SS200 is graded on a pass/fail basis, and does not affect GPA. A passing grade is assigned once the internship is complete. Student must submit the Internship Supervisor Verification Form (ISVF) to CGS Student Services, Room 211. The ISVF is attached to the Internship Application.

If a student is unable to complete the internship, s/he may petition Dean Godnick to withdraw from the CGS SS200: Internship course with a ‘W’ on his/her transcript. If the ISVF is not submitted within one year of the designated internship completion, a grade of ‘F’ will be posted on the transcript.

The Internship Application is available  and in Student Services, Room 211. Please set up an appointment with your CGS academic advisor for any questions about this process.
