Internships

For Credit

LMC students may earn credits by taking in LMC 4904 for qualifying unpaid internships.

Credits will count as LMC elective or Free elective.

LMC 4904 is pass/fail and requires that you meet Institute regulations on pass/fail credit; 9 credits pass/fail maximum are permitted while at Tech.

To Register for LMC 4904

  • First land the internship. Then have your new supervisor send an email to jillann.hertel@lmc.gatech.edu in order to receive the permit to register for the course.
    • The email should include employment details such as: dates, hours, and title/duties for your internship. Details must be approved as relevant for credit before students receive a permit to register. The time investment will correlate to the number of credits you earn.
    • Rule of thumb: 12-15 hours per week over a typical semester = 3 credits
  • Students must also complete the Information for Internship Partners and Internship Contract.
    • Please review the Internship Contract for LMC 4904 and then email the executed contract itself as attached or email the details in body text to jillann.hertel@lmc.gatech.edu from your email account.
