Summer 2020 Exception Request Forms

To help maintain the health and safety of both students and employers, the University has instituted a new policy that all credit-bearing internships and co-ops (including internal Penn State short-term positions) for both undergraduate and graduate students must be completed virtually at least through the summer. Students who do not have the option to work virtually may request an exemption to this policy by completing an Exception Request Form. Learn more about the process.

Nittany Lion Careers

Nittany Lion Careers is a free online resource that helps connect Penn State students with co-op, internship, and entry-level full-time positions. If you are a currently-enrolled student, you can log in using your Penn State ID and password.

Career Envoys

Career Envoys are students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels who have completed at least one co-op or internship experience and who help promote programs supported by both our office and the College of Engineering. They provide peer advising for engineering students and can answer questions about résumés, cover letters, interviews, and professionalism at work.
