The college establishes the teaching internship for one semester of the public school calendar (i.e., September-January or February-June) for junior high/middle school prospective teachers who have satisfied the content requirements for certification in New York State. Preservice teachers spend half of each day actively engaged in teaching their content in grades 7-9. This experience satisfies the NYS certification requirement for student teaching. Students planning to enter the internship must request a placement in the spring semester (by March 15) preceding their internship year. A $250 fee is required for each placement.
