Eligibility Requirements

  • Externships are available to full-time Kalamazoo College degree-seeking FIRST YEAR and SOPHOMORE students. (For AY 2021-2022, DIY Externships are open to Juniors and Seniors.)
  • Students may participate in only one externship per year as marked by the first day of the fall academic term.
  • Students may only have TWO applications open at one time between all three tracks.  
  • All applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (some positions require higher).
  • A student who applies for and is offered an externship is expected to accept the offer. Students should therefore only apply for opportunities that they would accept if offered.
  • Students currently on social probation may be ineligible to participate in the program; determination made on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions please contact Richard Sylvester at richard.sylvester@kzoo.edu.
