0-credit (IDIS 494) Internship Registration Requirements
This option allows students to have their on-campus or off-campus internship listed on their academic transcript as a 0-Credit Internship Course without a tuition charge. The course is graded S/U, is worth 0-credits, and will be listed on your transcript if all requirements are met.
Benefits of Registering Your Internship as 0-Credit
- Internship will be listed on your academic transcript and you will not incur any tuition charges.
- Internship experience is officially recognized by St. Norbert College.
- By completing a learning agreement that you, your supervisor and the Career and Professional office signs it ensures that learning will take place and if not, Career and Professional Development can assist as a mediator between you and the organization.
1. Complete a Learning Agreement
Learning agreements must be submitted within one week of your start date to ensure learning goals are set prior to the start of the internship. Please contact Career and Professional Development if your learning agreement will be submitted after your first week. All learning agreements for the 0-credit class are submitted via Career Connections.

2. Internship Evaluations
End-of-semester online evaluations will be emailed to you regarding the internship experience and to work site supervisors regarding your performance. Evaluations are required at the end of each semester and summer you intern, even if your internship site remains the same. You are strongly encouraged to discuss both evaluations with your supervisor, which can serve as an excellent reflection and learning opportunity. Both the student and supervisor should retain a copy of each of the evaluations.
You must complete a minimum of 60 hours at your internship site, which will be documented on the end-of-semester evaluations by both you and your work site supervisor.
