Students, Alumni, and Community Members

Nicole AndersonThe Academic Internship Program at Bellevue College (BC) allows you to acquire course credit while working and learning in a professional environment. You are able to apply the knowledge you have gained in the classroom in a work setting, thus enriching the learning experience.

Academic Credit

At BC we consider internships to be important for student development and career exploration, and we recognize the learning that takes place in an internship.

We require that student interns sign up for course credit through BC’s Academic Internship Program.

BC interns register for (EXPRL) 191: Academic Internship Experience. This is not a class where you sit in a classroom, but it is an individualized program designed to enhance your internship. You will complete some short writing assignments, and have a couple of one-on-one meetings with a Internship Coordinator. You will receive 1-5 academic credits, depending on how many total hours you worked at your internship, and receive a letter grade at the end of the class.

Internship Support

Bellevue College has been able to provide support to help students pay for the cost of the class tuition upon ascertaining the financial need of the student. This support may not be applied to any other courses.
