Planning a Summer internship for credit?

Macalester is offering two solid options for credit-bearing internships this summer.  As you make plans, review the Summer 2021 Internship Registration Fact Sheet for registration deadlines and details on which option is best for you!

  • Option #1: You can do a Mod 5 internship for 1-4 credits (as one of your two classes).  Must start and end within the Mod 5 dates (May 19 – July 10), and no incompletes or extensions are allowed. Registration deadline is: May 12, 2021
  • Option #2: You can do a Regular Summer Internship for one credit that has flexible start and end dates–particularly focused on longer internships that extend beyond July 10. Many students qualify for the tuition waiver program that makes this single credit free. Registration deadline is: May 25, 2021  
  • You cannot register an internship for both Mod 5 and as a Regular Summer Internship.  It has to be one or the other.
