Wondering when to do an internship? Are you worried that you’ve missed your chance? You haven’t! You can intern any time of the year!
During Fall and Spring Term
Find – or create – an internship opportunity that fits you best. Get creative! Many students do internships during the year with local employers, some in downtown Oneonta, and some right here on campus. Internships during the semester can be a few hours or many. They can be on one day or all week. It’s up to you!

During January Term
J Term is a great time to undertake an internship experience. Go home and do one while staying with family. Stay on campus and intern with one of our local partners. Competition for positions is low, as J Term is unique to Hartwick!
To see the deadlines to register for term-time credit, visit: Academic Deadlines and Important Dates set by the Registrar’s office. You must communicate with your faculty advisor before leaving campus for Winter Break if you are planning on registering a J Term internship. There are a few steps you are responsible for that they will guide you though.
During the Summer
Summer is a time to make money – that is understandable. But you need to think about the long-term as well. How will you pay off those school loans after you graduate? Do an internship in order to snag that top job after Hartwick. You really can work part- or full-time in the summer and do a part-time internship.
There is a fee when you register your internship for academic credit during the summer, just as any summer course. For 1 to 4 credits, the cost is $380. For 5 to 8 credits, it is $760.
