No Credit Option

Option for no credit (please talk to advisor if you wish to do this option)

The requirements for receiving a 0 Credit Transcript Notation are below:  While not providing academic credit, this transcript notation provides a permanent documentation that the University recognized the internship as professional work experience in the student's field of study.  The notation does not count toward graduation requirements but may help students maintain “full-time” student status for medical insurance and to prevent student loans from coming due.  International students may find this option helpful in maintaining legal VISA status if their internship is related to their field of study and the position is endorsed by UNI’s International Student Advisor.  A Career Services administrative charge of $15 is associated with seeking the notation. 

  • There is no tuition charge, minimum GPA requirement, or academic project.
  • Complete required University or employer/organization forms, including a post-experience evaluation.
  • Notify Career Services if you consider dropping the notation.  Keep the employer/organization and Career Services informed about any changes in your program or intentions. 
  • Work at least 50 hours in the internship in order to receive a transcript notation.

To set up the necessary paperwork (Transcript Notation Co-op Agreement form) it is necessary to meet with a Career Services staff person.  The student’s employer/organization will also be required to sign and date this form.  The Agreement is never retroactive for a previous semester or term.  The form for 0 Credit Transcript Notation can be found at the web address mention in number 1 above.
