Stay on track for graduation! Prospective ANRP interns are highly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to discuss how participation in ANRP could impact the student’s degree plan prior to submitting an ANRP application. Please talk to your academic advisor about receiving course credit while interning with the ANRP Internship Program.
All ANRP interns are required to enroll in academic credit during the internship semester. Specific coursework will depend on the individual student’s degree plan requirements. Students should work with their academic departments to determine which course(s) are the most appropriate for the internship. Traditionally these are listed as directed studies, special topic, or independent study courses and are 1-6 credit hours.
Undergraduates participating in either the Washington, D.C. or Austin, Texas program after graduation may enroll in a zero (0) hour course during the internship semester. Students participating in the Rome, Italy program are required to enroll in at least one (1) credit hour.
In addition to the ANRP coursework, some students gain additional hours that count towards graduation by enrolling in online coursework during the internship semester. However, because ANRP interns work 40 hours per week, the ANRP Internship Program staff does not recommend enrolling in more than six (6) credit hours.
Financial aid eligibility varies between students. It is ultimately the responsibility of each intern to meet with an advisor from the Scholarships & Financial Aid office to discuss how participation in the ANRP Internship Program will affect the student’s financial aid and scholarship eligibility. Please note that while ANRP interns are classified as full-time with the Registrar’s Office, it does not necessarily mean that a student is considered as full time for scholarship and financial aid purposes.
Intern Housing Accommodations
Housing and basic utilities are provided to ANRP interns participating in the Washington, D.C. program. These intern apartments are located in Crystal City (Arlington, Virginia). All D.C. interns are responsible for providing a housing deposit of $350.
The ANRP Internship program is not able to provide housing for interns participating in the Austin, Texas or Rome, Italy programs. As an Austin or Rome intern, the student is responsible for securing their own housing accommodations for the duration of the internship.
Training & Pre-Departure Events
Starting a new job, moving to a new city, and learning the ropes can be daunting, but the ANRP Internship Program helps its interns navigate the road to success!
Students accepted into ANRP must attend all training sessions and pre-departure events in College Station. There are typically two (2) required weeknight events in addition to an Intern Training Day. Intern Training Day occurs at the end of the semester and consists of a full day (8am-5pm) of sessions and activities with several Texas A&M administrators and special guests. ANRP also hosts an optional intern social which allows interns to network and socialize in an informal setting.
Passport & Visa Information
Students participating in the Rome program must possess a valid passport that does not expire within six months after the conclusion of the internship semester.
Additionally, Rome interns are required to obtain a visa if they will be in Italy for longer than 90 days. The ANRP Internship Program staff can provide verification documents as needed; however, it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to research and execute the visa application process. Please visit the Italian consulate’s website for the most current visa information.
