• No academic credit is earned for the internship unless required for your academic program.
  • Internships can be either paid or unpaid.
  • Internships should begin within one week of the start of classes and should end during the last week of classes.

Fall/Spring students

If you’re attending CIW in the fall or spring, we recommend you work three days a week, Monday through Wednesday, approximately 24 hours per week.

This schedule will allow you time for academic work, for touring Washington, and for the occasional trip to Ithaca or home.

Summer students

Summer participants typically work full time internships. We remind you to keep in mind your class schedule when setting up work commitments.
