Preparing to Apply:
While Syracuse University and the GET Immersion Experience program will help you in transitioning to the Immersion Experience, there are some personal responsibilities that are about to come your way to ensure your success. We've put together a list of considerations and some steps to take to make sure there are no surprises along the way.
- Check with your academic advisor to ensure your proposed credits will transfer between your school/program and Syracuse University.
- Stop by your Financial Aid Office and talk about scholarship and financial aid transfer to make sure it will be available for your particular situation. If some financial aid is unavailable, and you still plan to participate, you'll need to understand the added semester costs for joining the Immersion Experience will be yours to pay.
- The Immersion Experience goes well beyond the paid internship experience - you're required to participate in at least 12 credit hours of coursework during the Immersion Experience. To maintain fulltime student status you'll need to be taking at least 12 credits during the duration of the program. Your internship can be credit bearing or you can sign up for other online courses at Syracuse or your home college offered to Immersion students.
- You'll be responsible for finding and paying for your own housing and living expenses during the Immersion Experience's eight month duration. There are many housing options in each area and cost of living is factored into the payment/salary you'll be receiving.
NOTE: The GET Immersion Experience 2013 application process is now closed. If you have applied for positions you will be notified via email regarding company interviews and positions offers. You will not be able to enter the application system at this point.
