Submission Guidelines

Thank you for considering PSU’s student community for your opportunity!

The Graphic Design Program at PSU welcomes submissions that meet the following criteria:

  1. Requests for students (full-time, part-time, freelance or otherwise) who will be compensated at fair market value for their work
  2. Internships that meet the minimum standard of qualifications for student internships outlined on the Department of Labor (DOL) website.

PSU.GD generally refuses postings that:

  1. Request “spec work,” where students are asked to work for free, including competitions where there is no guarantee of compensation
  2. Internships that are not in the best interests of the student and their education.

We model industry standards for our students, standards set out by the AIGA, the Department of Labor, and other governing bureaus. If your posting is not made public after a week of submitting it, please refer to the standards above to ensure that your request meets our criteria before attempting to contact anyone at PSU.

PSU also has a student-run in-house Graphic Design Center (the GDC) that may be of service to you.

Please note that postings are moderated once a week, and we reserve the right, at any time, to refuse or delete a posting.
