An internship can only be undertaken after successful completion of one full-time semester of study or successful completion of 12 credit hours at Hudson Valley, and must be approved by the department chairperson. In addition, Disney has specific eligibility requirements that students must meet.

Students are required to keep a weekly journal of their work experience, noting how the experience relates to what they have learned in classes. Hudson Valley students have been interning at Disney since about 2005 and at least one or two Hudson Valley students are accepted each year.

Prior to applying, students should contact their academic advisor to see if the course fits into their program.
