Experiential Learning

Experiential learning offers NCC students an opportunity to apply knowledge, skills, and values learned in the classroom to real life experiences in the workplace environment. An internship or experiental learning opportunity can help shape your career trajectory, expand your professional network, build your resume, and bolster your chances of securing a good job after graduation.

The Career Services Office assists students in identifying internship and job shadowing opportunities, and it assists employers in identifying qualified students for internship opportunities.

Whether paid or unpaid, a job shadowing experience or an internship offers you connections into your future.

Employers seeking interns for open positions can begin the process by using the following link to complete our Internship Information Form.

Internships Out of State

Northampton Community College is an accredited institution of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and is authorized by the state of Pennsylvania.

As a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements  NCC offers online courses and internships to students located in other SARA member states, in accordance with the provisions of SARA. All states in the USA, excluding California, Florida, Massachusetts and the District of Columbia, participate in SARA.    

The state in which a student resides while completing an educational activity, (internship or an online course,) has authority to regulate the activity. If you live in California, Florida, or Massachusetts and wish to register for one of NCC's online offerings or participate in an internship/clinical placement, please contact us before registering to confirm if we offer those options in your state by calling 610-861-5500.  

Licensure Programs

If you are a Northampton or Monroe County student living outside of Pennsylvania or intending to complete an internship or clinical placement outside of the state in a NCC program leading to professional licensure, you should review requirements on the state board website to make sure that the program qualifies.

Licensure requirements vary from state to state and you may require additional authorization from the professional licensing agency in that state. Participating in a program from outside of Pennsylvania, if not properly authorized by that state's professional licensing board, could result in loss of licensing eligibility. If you need help or have questions, please contact your program's academic department for more information.
