Credits and Billing

  • You can earn a full semester's worth of credits from Occidental during the fall and spring semesters:

    • 8 credits for the internship

    • 4 credits each for the Core Course and Internship Seminar

      • During the summer, most Occidental students participate for the experience and do not receive credit.
