Alternative Study Options
Internship Deadline is ALWAYS the third Friday of each semester.
Through internships Elizabethtown College offers students the opportunity to apply and augment their classroom learning with real-world experience. Students should always consult with the appropriate Academic Department for more detail on specific departmental internship policies. If the department does not have a specific form, Registration and Records does supply a generic internship contract and it is available for pick-up in our office.
