    Princeton actually doesn't give credit for internships https://www.princeton.edu/oip/.... This can be both a bad and a good thing, though in my experience, it has been a good thing. Both my sophomore and junior year summers, I found internships (on my own, not through Princeton) that were originally intended to be for credit. Both times, I explained to them that Princeton doesn't accept credit for internships, and both times, I ended up getting paid for my internship. I can, however, imagine a circumstance where companies with very strict credit policies would not allow me to work for them. During my sophomore year, when my internship insisted that I work for credit, someone from Princeton's Career Services even personally wrote an email to the company (1) stating Princeton's no credit policy and (2) insuring them that my internship experience would be relevant to my academic interests and other for credit areas of my education, such as classes and my senior thesis.
