Step 3: Internship Approval

Self Check

Before submitting your internship for approval, ask yourself the following questions to determine if you have chosen an appropriate internship:

Registration Process

Once you have secured an internship, you need to fill out paperwork to be registered for the internship course. Please follow these instructions. You will NOT be registered or receive credit for your experience until all steps are completed.

  1. Go to the Internship Approval Webpage
  2. Click on the career navigator link and log in with your BYU-I username and password, (if you have not yet completed a profile for career navigator, simply follow the steps to do so).
  3. From the "quick links" bar at the top of the page, hover over profile and click internships from the drop-down options.
  4. Select "add new experience" if you have never done an internship prior. If you have then select "add new."
  5. Fill out form with all necessary information. If you do not have all the information on hand you can "save as draft" and continue at a later time. Once your internship has been approved you will be notified by Career Services. If the internship is approved you will then be able to enroll.
  6. Enroll in HFED 498R. Once you have access to HFED 498R  you may begin to complete your internship hours/experience.

The Family & Consumer Science Coordinator is: Cheryl Empey (empeyc@byui.edu)
For questions on this process, please contact the Academic Discovery Center.
This process can take anywhere from several days to several weeks, depending on the number of applications the Academic Discovery Center is processing. Please be mindful of this as you are making your preparations.
If your internship provider has never worked with BYU-I prior to your experience with them they will need to fill out a master agreement form with the school (speak to coordinator about this).
If you need access to a Word document reader, download Word Viewer.
