American University's Gap Program
American University Gap Program Booklet
American University’s Gap Program will provide you with an enriching
experience in Washington, D.C. You will build a foundation for academic
and professional success, while focusing on skills that can be applied
later in college and a career.
The Gap Program is an excellent option if you have just completed high school and are taking a year off before starting college.
How it works: You can enroll in a single semester (either fall or spring semester) or take a year in the program.
If you are a domestic student, your program plan consists of a seminar course, plus an internship for a 7-credit fall or spring semester.
