External Internships

These external internship programs are offered by provider organizations who specialize in making internship placements abroad. They are unpaid internships and are credit-bearing placements. Students receive an official transcript from the program and transfer the credits they receive back to GVSU.

Provider Organizations


Students take an internship course through the provider running the internship. Upon successful completion of this course, students are given a transcript which they can then use to transfer the credits back to GVSU.

PLEASE NOTE: some programs (Engineering, Nursing, Computer Science, Exercise Science) do not allow their 490 course requirement to be fulfilled by transfer credit. Students in these programs must consider GVSU Approved Programs to fulfill their GVSU 490 course.
