Middlebury does offer credit for unpaid winter term internships (you must complete an application to request credit); but does not grant academic credit for internships that take place during the summer.
WINTER TERM: Process for Requesting Academic Credit
To apply for credit for a winter term internship, you must apply by a fall deadline. Find the detailed instructions for this application process here.
SUMMER: Process for Requesting Transcript Notation
Because Middlebury does not grant credit for summer internships, you can instead receive a Transcript Notation, which indicates on your official transcript that you have completed the internship. In many cases, when employers require that students receive academic credit for a summer internship with their organization, the Transcript Notation is an alternative that might satisfy their requirement.
Be sure to verify this with the employer prior to the start of the summer internship. Complete the Transcript Notation Request Form and submit it to EIA before the start of your proposed internship; we recommend that you do this as soon as you have been offered the internship.
Detailed information about Transcript Notation, how to apply for this, and the requirements for you and the employer, are found here. Also, we recommend that you come in to EIA to talk with a career adviser to ensure that you understand the instructions regarding Transcript Notations.
After completing the summer internship, you must also ensure that your internship supervisor submits an evaluation letter to EIA describing your internship tasks and responsibilities and evaluating your performance.
