Interns may be able to receive academic credit through the college or institution in which they are currently enrolled. Contact your academic advisor to discuss whether this is possible. For interns not currently enrolled in an academic program or institution, Colorado State University's Department of Natural Resources, Recreation, and Tourism offers an option to earn up to 12 undergraduate credits (tuition fee required). The intern would work with an academic mentor and receive a grade for the work. Detailed information will be made available to everyone who is chosen to serve in an SCA internship position. Applicants must wait until they have accepted a position to apply for Colorado State University credit.

You’ll update your profile, apply for new positions, respond to offers and more with far greater ease, speed, and efficiency.
Please go to the Applying page to find lots of basic information about working with the application.
