Hi! I have a super specific question about the general eligibility requirements; it says that you have to have a minimum of 60 semester units by Fall 2022. On my transcript my CSUMB GPA Units would not be enough by that deadline, but I have transfer credits, so under my All College GPA would be enough. Is that alright?

Matilde Cerutti
31:01
Also, I’m a current sophomore and I’m interested in one of the internships that say “intended for juniors and seniors”… does that mean that sophomores are not allowed to apply at all?
Syan Shih

In the FAQ section, I don't see eligibility for students who are currently working on their ADT looking to transfer this year in FALL.
Kim Jassowski [COAST Staff] (she/her/hers)
32:59
Matilde: If you are a current sophomore now but will be considered a Junior at the beginning of Fall 2022 (i.e., 60 semester units or 90 quarter units completed), then you can apply
Emett Morrow
33:24
If you have, for example, a Geology background like that previous intern, should you be looking for the closest matching internship opportunity to your field, or just accept that you will not have much relation, and apply to what you like?
