An internship is a partnership between individual students, Gettysburg College, and companies or organizations where short-term work/learning experiences are offered to students. It is a way for students to connect the learning from their classrooms to the "world of work."
Students who are suspended/on leave of absence/withdrawn/below a 2.0 cumulative GPA are not eligible to participate in internships for Gettysburg College credit. The College will not provide a letter of eligibility or sponsorship and will not provide liability insurance while you are separated from the College.
1) Internships taken for academic credit are carefully designed to provide a program with a substantial academic component, as well as practical value.
2) Not for Credit ("College Approved internships") do not carry any academic credit, but do allow students to gain practical experience in a chosen career field.
Once you have been offered and have accepted an internship, you need to login to the Student Center and complete the following paperwork by the appropriate deadlines.
We recommend that you check your email frequently, as this will be our mode of communication with you throughout the internship process.
