Q: How will I find my internship?
A: Internships can be found three ways:
Q: Can I get a paid for my internship?

Q: What is the advantage of getting an internship available through Experiential Learning?
A: All of the Experiential Learning internships offered by our community partners are dedicated to Puget Sound students only.
Q: I’m not a sophomore what are my options?
A: Rising seniors may take advantage of the Summer Academic Internship class (EXLN 350) for 1.0 unit credit in the summer. If you plan to be away from campus, you might consider enrolling in the Intern Away class (EXLN 351) online class. You might also consider applying to the Summer Fellowship Internship program that is a special opportunity for students interested in interning at local nonprofits or governmental agencies but who cannot afford to take an unpaid internship.
Q: Are there any restrictions?
A: Yes, students must have at least a 2.5 GPA to participate. Exceptions may be permitted using the petitions process
Q: As a transfer student, may I participate?
A: Yes, transfer students may participate. Please check in with the Experiential Learning office at (253) 879-3124 to check your eligibility.
Q: I’m a sophomore, may I still apply to the Summer Fellowship Internship program and participate in RISE?
A: Yes! Also, because the class will help you prepare career documents, you may be a more competitive applicant for internships.
Q: Why shouldn’t I just do an internship without this class?
A: There are plenty of great reasons to take an academically framed internship:
