Tutorials for Internships

Fordham University students in good academic standing are eligible to receive credit while pursuing internships over the summer.

In order to receive credit for a summer internship, there are three options:

  1. You may register for SOCI 4900, a 4-credit internship class associated with the Summer in the City Internship Program. This 4-credit class counts as a class towards graduation and meets Monday evenings 6-9:45 pm, May 29-August 6. The class is graded on the typical 4.0 scale. Please contact summerschool@fordham.edu with your FIDN to be registered.
     
  2. You may earn elective credits within a specific discipline through a tutorial.  In a tutorial, you can earn 1-4 credits while working with an instructor of your choice from your major or minor area. Please first consult with the associate chair of your department for policies regarding interning within your major or minor.  The number of credits you earn depends upon financial considerations ($915 per credit), your graduation requirements, and the amount of work you are willing to do outside the internship. You receive credit for the academic component associated with the course, not for the time or activities related to the internship.  Many students opt for a one-credit tutorial, in which the academic component usually involves a weekly journal. Once you have identified an instructor willing to work with you, please complete this form.
     
  3. If you do not require credits within a specific discipline, the Rose Hill Dean's Office is offering a .5 credit Summer Intern option (INDP 4999; the cost is $457.50). All Fordham undergraduates are eligible to register, regardless of their home school. Please contact Dr. Annunziato for help registering for this special tutorial (annunziato@fordham.edu).

Tutorial registration forms need to be approved by your class dean and submitted to the Summer Session office by the Add/Drop deadline of the summer session in which you would like to be registered.

Note: A Pass/Fail grade is an option for tutorials. However, Pass/Fail classes cannot be applied toward fulfillment of the requirements of your major.

Tutorials for Independent Study

Fordham University students who wish to pursue independent research or make up credits during the summer may register for a tutorial. Students undertaking independent study must meet regularly with a faculty member to guide their work.

In a tutorial, you can earn 1-4 credits for your research. The number of credits you earn depends upon your financial considerations ($915 per credit), your graduation requirements, and the nature of your final project.

Once you have identified an instructor willing to work with you, complete this form.

Tutorial registration forms need to be approved by the department chair and your class dean and submitted to the Summer Session office by the Add/Drop deadline of the summer session in which you would like to be registered.

Note: A Pass/Fail grade is an option for tutorials. However, Pass/Fail classes cannot be applied toward fulfillment of the requirements of your major.
