Internships are generally geared toward students in their junior and senior year of college, and are also specific to a degree program. Many majors require an internship, so student should be in contact with their advisor or department coordinator (pdf). Students should consider an internship an investment. Just like your classes and books are part of the cost of an education, an internship is an important part of your college experience. An internship allows you to apply your coursework knowledge to real world work experience.
Internships are also available for freshman, sophomore, and undecided students in the form of Exploratory Internships. These internships are designed to give students an entry level look at different career fields that they may be interested in. Students who complete exploratory internships will receive general elective credit.
The Wolverine Career Link has many opportunities posted for all majors.

The Wolverine Career Link offers the following on and off-campus part-time employment opportunities:
Federal and state funds provide opportunities for students to work part-time for a fixed hourly wage. The total amount a student may earn is determined on the basis of need. The funds are LIMITED and are generally awarded on a first-come first-served basis to students who demonstrate need. Work study jobs are not to exceed 20 hours per week. Community service work study jobs are available. Students are encouraged to immediately contact a Financial Aid Counselor when their work study notification is received. If no contact is made by the deadline or before funds run out, the work study opportunity could be re-assigned to another student.
When the Financial Aid Counselor is contacted, the student is given a work study referral
that must be completed and turned into the Financial Aid office. Once the referral
is completed, the student then searches for a position through student employment.
The hiring party or campus department will submit the required electronic forms to
hire the student. All forms must be received and processed before paid work can begin.

UVU offers many work study positions on-campus. All work study positions are posted on the Wolverine Career Link. Students are not automatically applied for work study positions and must choose opportunities to apply for. Eligibility for work study funds does not guarantee a work study employment position.
Financial need is determined using a standard formula established by Congress, to evaluate the financial information reported on the FAFSA and to determine the expected family contribution (EFC). The fundamental elements in this standard formula are the student's income (and assets, if the student is independent), the parents' income and assets (if the student is dependent), the family's household size, and the number of family members (excluding parents) attending postsecondary institutions. The EFC is the sum of: (1) a percentage of net income (remaining income after subtracting allowances for basic living expenses) and (2) a percentage of net assets (assets remaining after subtracting an asset protection allowance). Different assessment rates and allowances are used for dependent students, independent students without dependents, and independent students with dependents. After filing a FAFSA, the student receives a Student Aid Report (SAR), or the institution receives an Institutional Student Institutional Student Information Report (ISIR), which provides the student's EFC.
