Public Affairs 4191.01

Glenn College undergraduate students have the opportunity to earn academic credit for their internship. This is done through successfully completing PUBAFRS 4191.01 (Nonprofit Internship). In order for your internship to be eligible for this course, it must:

  • Require at least 10 hours of work per week
  • Be in a field which is relevant to the students’ course of study or professional interests
  • Be preapproved by the Glenn College Office of Career Services

I was just hired into an internship, and I want to earn credit. Now what?

  1. Complete the Position Acceptance Form
  2. Send completed form to Allie Hutchison at hutchison.216@osu.edu or drop it off in person at the front desk in 110 Page Hall
  3. Once it has been determined that your internship meets the qualifications, the course instructor will register you for Public Affairs 4191.01

How many credit hours is PUBAFRS 4191.01 worth?

  • The class is worth 3 credit hours.

Can I retake PUBAFRS 4191.01?

  • Yes. A student may take the course for a total of 6 credit hours. However, the class may not be repeated for the same internship. If a student intends to take PUBAFRS 4191.01 twice, two separate internship experiences will be required.
