Please note: Requirements/Guidance on In-Person/Partial Remote Internships
If you have any internship opportunities that won’t be fully remote, at the moment please be aware that CUNY has informed the campuses that student internship-seekers should be performing their new roles in remote-only format. Students who choose to participate in an in-person internship, are participating at their own risk. If the internship is for credit or a stipend it must be approved. Note that most in-person internships are not being approved even if it is for credit or a stipend. Employers or students who have questions about whether their internship can be in person should reach out firstname.lastname@example.org assistance.
