Letter of Support

Some employers may require that students receive academic credit to be eligible to participate in their internship. Princeton University does not offer academic credit for internships.

Career Services offers a letter of support explaining the Princeton University policy. Some employers accept this letter of support in place of academic credit. The letter states that Princeton University supports student participation in valuable career-related experiences for which their internship could serve as a foundation, including independent research and future employment.

If you are seeking an internship for which course credit is required, we encourage you to print this letter (you must be logged into your Princeton Google account to access it) and share it with the employer requesting it. This letter should not be modified or updated in any way.

For additional questions, please contact Rachel Jimenez, senior associate director, alumni engagement and experiential learning.

Request for Enrollment Verification

A verification of enrollment form may be required by an employer. The Office of the Registrar will verify your enrollment without charge. Your director of studies can also provide an enrollment verification.
