Per our vaccination policy, every student who participates in person in any of our programs must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to their arrival to Washington, D.C.

While this overall policy will apply for all in-person programs, more specific details regarding housing arrangements, programming and COVID-19 testing procedures may change semester to semester. Please refer to the tabs below for more information about the status of our programs.

Fall Academic Internship Program (August 2021 - December 2021)

TWC is planning to host students in Washington, D.C. for the Fall 2021 Academic Internship Program, but we also understand that some schools may issue alternative policies regarding in-person participation in internship programs during the public health emergency. To accommodate students from these schools, we've updated the Academic Internship Program to ensure students can participate from anywhere.

One of the steps we’re taking to ensure the health and safety of the entire TWC community this fall is to require that students who participate in person receive the full COVID-19 vaccine prior to their arrival. Please review our vaccine policy and FAQs for the Fall semester.
