Credit Bearing Internship Academics
Step 1: Request Course Equivalencies
You will need to request a course equivalency from a relevant GVSU department to determine how the course would transfer back to GVSU.
To request a course equivalency, you must contact the appropriate department contact by sending them an email (see Sample Email) or meeting with them in-person to fill out the Departmental Course Approval Form together.
The following information must be provided for each course you're seeking an equivalency for:
- Detailed overseas course description (a syllabus is preferred)
- Number of contact hours
If you are having any difficulty finding the above, contact the Padnos International Center for assistance.
Step 2: Send Forms to Padnos International Center
Emails with course equivalencies listed should be forwarded to Rebecca Hambleton at firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed 'Departmental Course Approval Forms' should also be turned in to Rebecca Hambleton.
