Program Description:
Important Gustavus Credit Info

Only the 12-week model is open to Gustavus participants, as the 8-week model is too short to earn Gustavus credit.

Note, too, that the full load in a CISabroad Internship is 3 Gustavus units. While this is the minimum course load to be considered enrolled full-time at Gustavus, it is NOT a sufficient course load for those who receive Minnesota state grants in their financial aid package, and it is also not a sufficient load to remain on track for graduating on time. For those reasons, most students will want to add an additional 1-unit independent study course with a Gustavus professor, or to add the combination of the 0.5-unit online course offered to all study away students in non-Gustavus programs (“Engaging Cultural Difference”) and an additional 0.5-unit independent study course.

Because enrolled Gustavus students will be seeking academic credit, there is an additional $800 charge (reflected in the budget sheet shown here) for internship course enrollment at Plymouth State University, the school of record for CISabroad internships.

Limit on Career-Related Credits in the Degree. Note that students are permitted to count a maximum of 4 course credits of career-related experiential education toward graduation requirements at Gustavus. (This experience counts as 3 credits on its own.) This maximum includes: Career Exploration (268), semester or summer Academic Internships (368), Orientation to Teaching (EDU-268), and Student Teaching (EDU-392, 394, 395, 396). Additional credits (beyond the maximum of four) can be taken as a course audit (standard tuition applies) but would not be counted toward graduation. Applying Academic Internship credit towards a major is determined by the academic department.

Housing Deposit. In addition to the costs shown in the budget, participants will pay a refundable $500 housing deposit. The deposit may be fully or partially refunded after departure depending on the state of the housing after students leave.
