AU Gap Program

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. This program is an excellent option if you have just completed high school and are taking a year off before starting college.

This is how it works: You have the option to enroll in a single semester (either fall or spring semester) or take a year-long program. Each semester you will enroll in one program track comprised of an internship experience and a seminar course. Each semester, you will earn 7-credits.
