Sophomores: Apply for Internship Eligibility Once You Have 60 Credits

Sophomores, CMM majors are not required to complete an internship, but it is highly encouraged. For an internship to count towards your credit count, you must be certified as internship eligible before you start looking for an internship. You can do that once you have 60 college credits.

Internship eligibility does not expire unless you GPA drops below 2.5, so you should apply now so you don’t have to worry about it later. Get it out of the way!

Here are all the minimum requirements to apply for internship eligibility:

  • 60 total credits
  • 30 credits at New Paltz
  • 18 credits in your major
  • 2.5 GPA

Once you have all of the above, visit the Blackboard community “Spring21_Communication & DMJ Students” to submit the Google Form application and upload your one-page, single-sided resume and progress report.

You must be certified eligible at least one semester before interning, so why not get it out of the way now?
