Want to Earn Internship Credits? Follow This Process Now

Below are our four steps to getting certified to complete an internship. If you plan on completing an internship for credit, you must follow all these steps. The first step in the internship process needs to be completed ASAP. If you are a sophomore, you are likely eligible to complete the first step.

  1. Fill out the application process for approval to earn internship credits.

This is the very first step in the process and should happen before anything else, including looking for an internship. To gain approval to earn internship credits, you must complete the application and submit your progress report and one-page, single-sided resume. All three portions of this application process can be found in the online Blackboard community “Spring22_Communication & DMJ Students”

Here’s where to find the application:

  • Blackboard community page

If you do not complete this step, any internship you complete will not count for any credits. Once you submit this application and it is approved, it is good until you graduate. That means if you submit this application as a sophomore but don’t complete an internship until senior year, you do not need to submit this application again. You are still approved to earn credits (as long as your GPA has not fallen below 2.5)! In order to be approved to earn internship credits, you need at least:

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

The deadline to submit this application is the second Friday in March for summer or fall internships and the second Friday in November for spring internships.

2. Find an internship

Once you have been approved to earn internship credits, you will receive a congratulatory email. After you receive this email, you are free to find an internship. This step is completely up to you. You must search and apply for your own internship(s). Start early so you can be sure you have a placement before the semester starts. Follow our program on Instagram @npcommedia for regular internship opportunity postings.

3. Get internship approved by Internship Director, Nancy Heiz

Once you have found an internship and are accepted/hired into that internship, you must get that internship approved. Visit Nancy Heiz in CSB 64 to get your internship approved. Again, do not wait to do this until the semester you plan to intern.

4. Register for Internship Credits

After your internship is approved by Nancy Heiz, you must register for the internship classes. CMM490 is the internship credits, and CMM491 is the internship seminar that must be taken alongside your internship. Register for these courses like any other course you would register for.

Once you have completed these steps, you are all set to start your internship and earn credits for it!
