          Internships & Experiential Learning


          The Center for Career Development helps students locate and apply for internships and explore opportunities to supplement their education with the hands-on experience employers look for during the hiring process.

          Students in a learning environment

          Internships are excellent opportunities to apply classroom learning to practical environments, gain valuable job experience and network with professionals in your field. Increasingly, employers are looking for internship experience when evaluating new graduates. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, students who complete internships get hired earlier and earn higher salaries than those who don't.

          Qualifications

          In order to qualify for an internship, students enrolled in baccalaureate programs must have completed a minimum of 60 credit hours, with at least 15 of those hours having been completed at Edinboro University. Undergraduate students enrolling for internships must have earned a minimum overall GPA of 2.0, a minimum GPA in their major of 2.5 and must meet departmental internship criteria.

          Students must pay tuition fees for all credits earned through an internship arrangement in accordance with the University schedule of semester or summer sessions.

          Students who qualify for internship credits are encouraged to contact their respective department internship directors.

          Financial Aid

          Students wishing to receive financial aid for their internship must complete the following steps:

          • Apply for an internship through your academic department.
          • Bring a copy of approval to Office for Student Financial Support and Services (OSFSS). OSFSS will give you a “Temporary Award Letter.”
          • Take the “Temporary Award Letter” to Bursar’s Office with check (if necessary) to complete payment.
          • Go to the Scheduling Office to schedule the internship.
