Students who are serving community organizations without pay are eligible to earn credits if they complete additional academic deliverables with an iSchool faculty member. Students pursuing Departmental Honors in Informatics must complete at least 2 credits of INFO 496 or 499 to complete their honors requirements.
If you’re planning to receive credit for service learning in an upcoming quarter, please follow these guidelines:
Step 1 (at least two weeks before beginning of the quarter):
Find a faculty sponsor. This faculty member will supervise and evaluate your internship as well as be responsible to give you a grade for INFO 496.
Step 2 (at least one week before beginning of the quarter):
Complete the INFO 496: Service Learning Proposal Form.
Step 3 (2-3 days):
Once we process your INFO 496 request, we’ll send you an add code.
