Internships with Extra Requirements

Learn about the student guidelines for different types of internships and to ensure approval and credit for your internship.

International internships must meet a higher standard and require special handling due to potential risks associated with travel/living outside the U.S. Please be aware that this process will take several weeks and you must submit your request sufficiently in advance to allow time for this. Not all international internship requests are approved, so any expenditures made prior to final approval and authorization for credit may be done at the risk of not receiving internship credit for the experience in the event that your internship is denied. Such expenditures might include pre-paid travel, lodging, and program participation costs.

To apply for an entrepreneurial internship, you need to submit an extensive business plan and a signed confirmation letter from a LOCAL outside mentor.

These guidelines are intended to provide students with high-quality experiences, comparable to off-campus internships. Students will be able to focus on gaining valuable skills, rather than trying to juggle the demands of work and school simultaneously.

On-campus internships should be driven by the department, rather than a student’s request. The department should identify a need, determine if a qualified supervisor is available to oversee the student, and then submit a request.

This type of internship is designed to be completed with hospitals that BYU-Idaho has a separate Affiliation Agreement. These agreements require interns to obtain background checks, drug screens and provide immunization records prior to being authorized for their internship course. Only students interning at these hospitals should select the Healthcare Facility Internship Type.

Clinics, doctor’s offices, gyms, therapy and rehabilitation centers, etc., do not have these requirements. For those please use the Standard Internship Type.

Financial assistance is available in some instances. It is administered by the Financial Aid Office. Please visit the Financial Aid website for more information.
