BIOL 496 Student-Agency Contract (1-5 cr.; repeatable to 8 cr. total)
BIOl 496 is for students who wish to receive credit for on-the-job experiences in biologically related fields through volunteer, internship, or employment opportunities. The work experience should provide students the opportunity to integrate their academic experience with off-campus work in basic or applied biology. All international internships MUST go through the International Programs and Exchanges office first.
Please complete the form after meeting with a biology faculty member to discuss the appropriateness of receiving credit for the work experience and making arrangements with the Cooperating Agency.
An override for BIOL 496 will be entered and you will be given the CRN to use for registration after your faculty advisor has approved your participation and forwarded your request to the Biology Department office.
Failure to add this course by the end of Phase III Registration will result in the assessment of a late registration fee by the Registrar’s office.
