Register for Credit - When You Have Secured An Internship Site
Click the "Registration for Credit" blue ribbon on the right side of this page. When you receive an email indicating an Instructor Override has been granted, you may go into MCSquare, register, and adjust your schedule to avoid going over the 18 credit limit.
If you register for INTE391, please note the following important information from the Registrar's Office:“If you intend for this course to meet a major, minor or concentration requirement, you must be registered for it as a letter-grade. Final grades of “P” or “F” cannot be applied to meet major, minor or concentration requirements. After you receive your course override and register for the course, check your registration in self-service Banner by accessing your Student Detail Schedule under the Registration menu. The Grade Mode listed in each course (right below the instructor’s name) will tell you if you are registered for a letter grade or pass/fail."
