Internship PoliciesInternships are a wonderful complement to classroom learning, but not a replacement. The skills and talents that Stern students bring to their internships are certainly worth compensation. Therefore, it is the policy of the Stern Undergraduate College not to grant academic credit for internships. Furthermore, Stern does not authorize the signing of release of liability waivers pertaining to internships you undertake.
You may accept paid and/or unpaid internships; however, it is preferable that you request to be paid. Scheduling conflicts with internships are not an acceptable excuse for failing to meet your academic obligations including, but not limited to, attending class, arriving to class on time, taking scheduled examinations, completing homework assignments, fulfilling group work obligations, and addressing registration issues.
