My Honors College


It is not unusual for students to work at two or more internships during their college career. Internships provide unique learning experiences and add to a student’s network of contacts.

You can receive academic credit or satisfy the Honors College Beyond the Classroom requirement by doing an internship. The deadline to request credit for an internship is the drop/add day of each academic semester.


Which Internship is Right for You?

The Honors College offers internship credit through our own Honors College internships program, and administers the SC Semester Program and Washington Semester Program. The Honors College also recognizes internships recorded by other departments if they appear on your transcript.

If you plan to use your internship as a means to satisfy the Beyond the Classroom requirement, you must be enrolled in an Honors College internship course.  If you have already satisfied that requirement, you may still receive academic credit for your internship.  In order to apply for course credit, please complete the internship contract and return it to the Director of Internship Programs. Internships must meet certain criteria in order to qualify for academic credit. In order to receive credit for an internship, students must enroll in an Honors College internship course prior to the semester in which they plan to receive credit.

Students must also meet or speak directly to the Director of Internships in order to complete the enrollment process.  See "Honors College Internships" for detailed information about getting academic credit for an internship.


Keep Us Informed!

The South Carolina Honors College likes to keep track of the many experiences our students have while in college.  If you already have or have had an internship without getting academic credit, we would love to hear about it!  Please email the Director of Internships ( to describe your internship is and briefly what you are doing.  

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
