UNH TWC Program Overview

The Washington Center's Three-Part Program: More Than Just an Internship!


Students remain enrolled at, and receive academic credit from UNH. Credit is awarded based on an evaluation performed by The Washington Center staff, the internship site supervisor, TWC faculty, UNH campus liaison, and UNH faculty sponsor. Fall or spring semester provide a total of 16 credits (12 for the internship and seminar, 4 for the evening class). Summer session, which is just 10 weeks long, is 12 credits (8 for the internship/seminar and 4 for the evening class). For a great comparison of summer to the academic year experience, visit this page.


Students pay tuition and some fees to UNH. Housing is billed from and paid directly to The Washington Center, for those who choose to live there. Financial aid is applied for and received from UNH. Some financial assistance may be available in the form of awards to defray part of the cost of TWC housing. Outside sources of funding may be available for qualifying student (such as The New Hampshire State Society, or the Pi Sigma Alpha Political Science Honors Scholarship). Students may also utilize NHEAF loans and other educational resources to pay for TWC.
