International Internships Policies

SUNY Cortland runs a number of study abroad programs that offer part-time internships as a part of full-time study. Students who are interested in a full-time internship placement abroad should consider the Belize Internships Program, Projects Abroad, or an Independent International Internship.

In order to gain SUNY Cortland credit for any internship abroad, the following criteria must be met:

  1. Students must complete 40 hours of internship work for every 1 academic credit they wish to receive. Students keep a time sheet, provided by the International Programs Office, which is signed by their on-site internship supervisor at the completion of their internship.
  2. Students must engage in an internship course alongside their on-site internship work. Students may choose to have their academic work assigned and overseen by:
    1. a faculty member in their home department.
    2. a faculty member at their home institution (for non-Cortland students).
    3. the SUNY Cortland International Programs Office, via an online International Internship course.
    4. student interns on the Belize Internships program will have academic work assigned and overseen by
      on-site Director, Dr. Nancy Adamson.
    Students are responsible for researching their options for academic oversight and communicating their choice to the International Programs Office by submitting the Internship Academic Oversight Form that is also found inside of the program application for any program offering an internship. It should be completed BEFORE departure. If a student fails to communicate an internship placement abroad and/or an academic assignment and oversight option to the Office of International Programs, they will not be able to receive academic credit for their experience.
