Internship Frequently Asked Questions
How does the FBI Honors Internship Program and Collegiate Hiring Initiative selection process work?
There are four stages in the hiring process:
- Initial Selection and Interviews – The most competitive candidates will be invited for interviews.
- Final Selection and Conditional Offer – Selections are based upon academic achievements, area of study, life/work experiences, and the needs of the FBI. If you are selected, you will receive a conditional offer of employment by the FBI. This offer is contingent upon the successful completion and favorable adjudication of your full background investigation and the receipt of an FBI Top Secret security clearance.
- Background Investigation – Candidates who accept a conditional job offer will be sent an e-QIP application invite via email and will be scheduled for a Personnel Security Interview, pre-employment polygraph examination, urinalysis test and fingerprinting. FBI background investigators will contact former and current employers, references, social acquaintances and neighbors. They will also review your school, credit, arrest, medical and military records. The length of your background investigation depends on a number of different variables, including how quickly and thoroughly you complete and submit the e-QIP application; the extent of your foreign travel or time living abroad; and inconsistencies in the application and investigation process. Please see the Background Investigation portion of this site for more information on the FBI Background Investigation process.
- Enter on Duty – Upon issuance of a Top Secret security clearance, you will be contacted and scheduled for an enter-on-duty (EOD) date. The FBI Honors Internship Program begins in the summer.
How long does it take to be hired as an FBI Honors Intern or Collegiate Hire?
The hiring process will depend on the length of the background investigation. When conditional job offers are made and the candidates complete the necessary e-QIP application and preliminary processing, the FBI will begin the background investigation. Background investigation length can be affected by things like foreign travel, international friends or contacts, and other factors. However, most entry-on-duties (EODs) will take place during the summer after applications are due.
Who is my point of contact during the application process?
The Applicant Coordinator, or designated field office representative from your local FBI Field Office, is your point of contact throughout this process.
May I apply to both the Honors Internship Program and Collegiate Hiring Initiative at the same time?
No. The Honors Internship Program is for students who have not yet graduated or who are not graduating until at least Fall of the year after they apply. The Collegiate Hiring Initiative is for students who are graduating through Summer of the year they apply, or who have graduated within 24 months of applying. For example, a student graduating in Summer may not apply for the Honors Internship Program, but is eligible to apply for the Collegiate Hiring Initiative. Likewise, a student graduating in Fall may apply to the Honors Internship Program, but not to the Collegiate Hiring Initiative.
If I have taken illegal drugs in the past, can I still work for the FBI?
The FBI’s illegal drug policy is both clear and explicit. No exceptions will be made to the policy, and your answers are subject to verification by urinalysis and pre-employment polygraph examination(s). Please review the Employment Eligibility page to ensure you are eligible to apply for employment with the FBI.
If I have traveled or lived abroad, will that hinder my receiving a security clearance?
Many of the permanent positions at the FBI are internationally oriented, and experience living or traveling abroad is often viewed as a positive experience. However, there are cases in which national security concerns may arise. Extensive foreign experience may delay the background investigation process if there is difficulty verifying information on the application.
I am a citizen of another country. May I apply?
You must be a United States citizen to apply. If you are a United States citizen with dual citizenship, you may apply if you are willing to renounce your non-U.S. citizenship. Dual citizens who renounce their non-U.S. citizenship will be required to execute a declaration form.
My background investigation is taking a long time and the program begins soon. Should I assume that I have been disqualified?
No. You will be notified in writing if you have not been accepted. You may contact the Applicant Coordinator in your processing field office at any time to ascertain your status.
Does the FBI furnish housing for Honors Interns or Collegiate Hires?
No. The FBI does not pay for or provide housing or travel expenses.
Can I have roommates who are not FBI employees?
Yes. All roommates, however, must undergo a security check. Upon entering on duty, you and your roommates must complete a roommate background data form.
How will I get to work, and do I need a car?
For FBI Headquarters or Washington Field Office interns, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority provides Metrorail and Metrobus services. Use the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority website to determine routes and fares. Transit subsidies are available contingent upon available funding. Field office assigned interns or hires are expected to live within a commutable distance to the office they are applying to and utilize the most appropriate transportation. An intern or employee may drive to his or her assignment, but travel expenses are not reimbursed.
Individuals working in Quantico, Virginia or Clarksburg, West Virginia must have their own method of transportation to and from work.
May I take any time off during the internship?
Yes. Interns earn annual and sick leave while on a full-time schedule for 10 weeks during the summer only. As a guideline, interns may take “leave” approximately one day per month.
How should I dress for work?
Appropriate attire for men includes business suits, sport jackets and slacks, shirts and ties. Appropriate attire for women includes business dresses, dress suits, pants suits and professional blouses.
What types of projects do Honors Interns and Collegiate Hires work on?
Interns work on a variety of projects, including (but not limited to): analyzing crime data, development of portals to facilitate the exchange of information between law enforcement agencies and the FBI, supporting operations and aiding with divisions audits to ensure compliance with FBI regulations. For more information on Collegiate Hire work experiences, please visit the Collegiate Hiring Initiative section.
Will I be offered a full-time position with the FBI at the conclusion of my Honors Internship?
Interns are not guaranteed a job offer for a full-time position. However, interns who have graduated and receive recommendations for hire may be extended a job offer. If the job offer is accepted, they are converted to a permanent position pending their completion of 16 hours per month of work at the field office during the rest of their academic tenure. This 16 hours ensures the student is able to maintain his or her security clearance according to OPM’s guidelines.
What is a DD?
The DD is a document of the United States Department of Defense issued upon a military service member’s retirement, separation or discharge from active-duty military.
Department Issued Reports
This page gives a view of the Baytown Police Department from a historical data perspective. The Department is proud of its record in keeping crime reduction a priority.
**Effective 01/01/, by state and federal mandate, the Department transitioned to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) instead of Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR). Crime data is collected differently to better reflect criminal episodes.
The Baytown Police Department classifies and reports crime statistics according to the NIBRS. Each month a report is prepared and submitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), through the Texas Department of Public Safety, that reports offenses known to the Baytown Police Department.
The Crime Analysis Unit also compiles a monthly summary and Crime Comparison report that is submitted to and approved by the Chief of Police that provides information regarding Part I offenses, calls for service, traffic crashes, arrests, and citations.
The National Incident-Based Reporting System published by the FBI is the official crime report of the Baytown Police Department. The information provided on this website is done so entirely as a public service.
The FBI publishes the annual NIBRS Report, Crime in the United States. The report is published in October of each year and covers the preceding calendar year. A preliminary report of the previous year's crime statistics is available on the FBI's website in June of each year.
Multi-Year Summary of Total Crime
1. How are Special Agents assigned to offices and how often are Special Agents rotated in their assignments?
Flexibility is key at the FBI. You must be prepared and willing to be assigned according to the needs of the Bureau. All Agents must sign and adhere to a mobility agreement, which states that as a Special Agent, you accept the possibility of transfer as a condition of your employment. However, once assigned to a Field Office, new Special Agents are generally not transferred unless they request voluntary transfer, apply for management positions or transfer as a result of an emerging or existing critical need.
Upon graduation from the FBI Academy, you will be assigned to one of the FBI’s 56 Field Offices or satellite offices. Roughly one-third of new Agents get their first choice. Not sure about the transfer process?
2. What is the age requirement for applying?
FBI Special Agents have a mandatory retirement age of In order to achieve the required 20 years of service for retirement, Special Agents must enter on duty no later than the day before their 37th birthday. Applicants must apply for the Special Agent position prior to their 36th birthday to allow adequate time to complete the SASS. The FBI may disqualify applicants at any time during the process if it is determined that they will reach age 37 before appointment.
Potential Exceptions: Applicants with certain prior federal law enforcement service, applicants who are current FBI employees or preference eligible veterans may qualify for an age waiver.
3. Are waivers available for applicants 37 and older?
Per Public Law , enacted July 12, , the Attorney General and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) set the date immediately preceding one’s 37th birthday as the last date for original entry on duty as a law enforcement officer in the Department of Justice.
Waivers are available for preference-eligible veterans who have been discharged or released from active duty from the Armed Forces under honorable conditions (honorable or general discharge). The Member 4 copy of the DD and, in the case of service-connected disabilities, a copy of the SF “Application for Point Veterans’ Preference,” as well as other applicable documentation to confirm Veterans’ Preference eligibility, must be submitted at the time of application.
Military retirees at the rank of Major, Lieutenant Commander or higher are not eligible for preference in appointment unless they are disabled veterans. This does not apply to reservists who will not begin drawing military retired pay until age
Current FBI employees are eligible to apply prior to their 39th birthday and must be appointed and assigned to the FBI Academy no later than one day preceding their 40th birthday.
Age waivers for preference-eligible veterans will be requested only after they successfully complete all phases of the Special Agent Selection System (SASS) and have been favorably adjudicated/cleared for hire. Preference-eligible applicants must still pass all other components of the SASS, including the FBI Physical Fitness Test (PFT) and fitness-for-duty requirements.
More information can be found on our Veterans page.
4. Is there a waiver of the bachelor’s degree if an applicant has military service?
No. All Special Agent applicants must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree or higher from a U.S.-accredited college or university.
5. Will having uncorrected vision or laser surgery disqualify me from applying for the Special Agent position?
Distant visual acuity, corrected or uncorrected, must meet FBI standards. Special Agent applicants need to have at least 20/20 vision in one eye and not worse than 20/40 vision in the other eye. If an individual has a satisfactory history of wearing soft contact lenses for more than one year, and is able to meet correction to 20/20 in one eye and no worse than 20/40 in the other eye, safety concerns are considered mitigated and applicant processing may continue.
If an applicant has had laser eye corrective surgery, a six-month waiting period is required prior to beginning New Agent Training. Applicants must also provide evidence of complete healing by an ophthalmological clinical evaluation.
The policy for color vision allows continuation of applicant processing if those who fail initial color vision screening are able to successfully complete the Farnsworth D color vision test.
For more information, see “Vision Exam” in the Fitness-For-Duty Medical Examination Guide Fitness-For-Duty Medical Examination.
6. How long does the FBI Special Agent application process take?
The Special Agent application process generally takes at least one year and often longer, depending upon annual federal funding levels and hiring goals.
The Special Agent Selection System (SASS) — Phase I and Phase II Testing — is based on an applicant’s individual competitiveness.
In addition to the Phase I and II testing process, the PFT, the background investigation and medical evaluation will affect the length of the application process. Each of these items can take a considerable amount of time to complete if an applicant has lived in several areas, has extensive foreign travel or has held several jobs.
For more information, visit the FBI Eligibility page and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) website to ensure all information needed has been gathered ahead of time.
7. What kind of training do FBI Special Agents receive?
All Special Agents will spend their first 20 weeks at the FBI Academy in Quantico, VA, where they participate in intensive training. During their time at the FBI Academy, trainees live on campus, participate in a variety of training activities and study a wide variety of academic subjects. The FBI Academy curriculum also includes intensive training in physical fitness, defensive tactics, practical application exercises and the use of firearms.
Over the course of an Agent’s career, the FBI provides additional training opportunities to keep him/her updated on the latest developments in the respective specialty fields.
See more information at FBI Academy.
8. Do I need to have a law enforcement or military background to apply to become an FBI Special Agent? Are certain degrees more desired by the FBI?
A law enforcement or military background is not required. Because of the breadth and scope of the FBI’s mission, it looks for candidates with a wide variety of backgrounds, not just law enforcement or military experience. The FBI seeks Special Agents with any occupation that requires a college degree. Specifically, we look for expertise in physical science, computer science, engineering, architecture, law, accounting, and other disciplines that require logical analysis and critical thinking.
We’re also actively seeking Special Agents who are fluent in critical foreign languages, as well as those with experience in intelligence and counterterrorism work. Study a field you enjoy and, after that, obtain experiences that will demonstrate your ability to master the Special Agent core competencies, specifically:
Surrender now, testify, beg for a lesser sentence, do it before some other Agent does.!
