Getting Approved

All internships must be registered for and pre-approved before a student begins their internship experience. To be approved, students need to complete necessary prerequisites and an internship approval form on I-Plan. After approval, a master agreement will be emailed to the internship provider. It is then the student's responsibility to ensure that their internship provider submits the master agreement. More detailed information can be found on BYU-Idaho's Internship webpage.
