Fairfield University IN DC



Credits and Billing

  • You can earn a full semester's worth of credits from Fairfield:
    • 9 credits for the internship and Internship Seminar
    • 3 credits for the Core Course and an optional 3 credits for the Independent Research Project 
      • Special Requirements: Fairfield expects students to complete a significant written research project that will ultimately be returned to a supervising professor for review. Ideally, the project will complement the focus of the internship.

  • You pay what you normally pay to attend Fairfield to participate in our program during the fall and spring semesters: your financial aid travels with you to DC.

Consult with your faculty adviser and Fairfield staff to determine your credit and billing arrangements.
