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.

The Office of Career Services is able to provide students with a letter of support explaining the Princeton University policy. This 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. Some employers accept this letter of support in place of academic credit.

Request for Letter of Support

If you are seeking an internship for which course credit is required and you would like to request a letter of support, please complete this form, providing the necessary details for us to write the letter on your behalf.

Career Services will draft your letter within two business days upon receipt of all required information. For additional questions, please contact Rachel Jimenez, associate director, internships and experiential education.

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.
