Students participating in internships with external companies/organizations must comply with all health and safety rules, including those related to COVID-19 prevention, set by the external companies/organizations. For example, external companies/organizations may have different masking or vaccination rules than the University, including in some instances stricter rules, and students must comply with those rules, in addition to the Syracuse University rules. 

Failure to comply with a company/organization’s health and safety rules may prevent a particular placement or result in the loss of a placement.  If you have any questions about requirements for companies/organizations, please let us know.


I release Syracuse University and its trustees, officers, employees, and agents from, and agree not to sue them for any and all claims and causes of action for loss of or damage to property, bodily or personal injury, loss of companionship or support, or death sustained by me (the student participant) or third parties arising out of any activity or travel conducted by or under the Newhouse NYC program unless the loss, damage, injury, or death is caused by the negligence of Syracuse University.  

I understand that occasionally a student may require hospitalization or other medical treatment. In the rare instance that I am unable to give my consent to receive medical treatment, I authorize the representative of Syracuse University to contact my emergency contact person(s) to relay my status to them.  

I understand that Newhouse NYC program administrators may revoke my acceptance for any series of reasons including, but not limited to, poor academic performance, disciplinary sanctions, misrepresentation of my academic record or misconduct on my part.  

S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications reserves the right to cancel the Newhouse NYC program, or any course associated with the program at any time when deemed appropriate due to unforeseen circumstances.
