Internship Transcript Notation

Students who are not participating in the Pomona College Internship Program (PCIP), but are participating in an internship, may be eligible for an Internship Transcript Notation. The CDO has been authorized by the faculty to assess internship options and, when warranted, approve internships to be notated as equivalent to one-half-course credit by those colleges that award credit for such work, on the student’s college academic record.

Pomona College does not award graduation credit for stand-alone (non-course-based) internships, so the credit is not calculated into the student’s earned units at Pomona College. Therefore, the one-half-course credit will be noted on the students’ transcript, but will not count towards the total units needed for graduation.


Eligibility Requirements (Fall 2022)

  1. Be enrolled full-time during Fall 2022 and be returning in Spring 2023 (seniors graduating in the spring are not eligible).
  2. Submit a Request for Internship Transcript Notation form within a week of starting your internship.​ Students participating in a cooperative exchange program away from Pomona College do not qualify.
  3. Complete a minimum of 80 hours by Wednesday, November 30.
  4. Submit a one-page reflection paper summarizing the experience (details below)
  5. Submit a final evaluation form completed by the internship supervisor

  • Identify the sponsoring organization and your responsibilities as an intern.
  • Describe your goals for the internship and if each was accomplished.
  • What were some challenges and memorable experiences?
  • What impact did this experience have on your career/educational goals?
  • Would you recommend this internship to another student?
