The Career Resource Center (CRC) is happy to help students before they apply to these internships. They will read over application answers before you submit them, and help prepare you for an interview. The CRC has drop-in hours Tuesdays to Thursdays from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon.

To be eligible to earn internship credits for the CMM department, you must have a 2.5 GPA or higher, have at least 18 credits in your major, 30 credits at New Paltz, and 60 credits overall. The deadline to apply for credit within the department for Summer 2020 is March 13, 2020.

Attention Seniors! Seminars are Concentration-Specific! Org Comm Majors Take Org Comm Seminar; Interpersonal Majors Take Interpersonal Seminar

Communication Students, take note! Our department is offering two senior seminars for Spring 2020: one for Organizational Comm majors and the other for Interpersonal/Intercultural Comm majors. Please be sure to enroll in the correct seminar for your concentration. Both are writing intensive.


Be Prepared for Spring Registration Next Week

Spring 2020 registration starts next week. Starting this registration cycle, advisors can no longer pre-register students or save seats for students for any course. You are now solely responsible for registering at the start of your time assignment to get the very best shot at getting into the classes you want. In addition, make sure you have multiple back-up plans in case you can’t get into your first choice of classes. By now, you should have met with your advisor, been released to register by your advisor and given a time assignment by Records & Reg. You can view your time assignment by logging into and clicking Registration and then Time Assignment.

Remember: your advisor can no longer help you get into the classes you want. It is up to you to make sure you have planned correctly and have back-up options.
