Internship Agreements

Overview

Internship Agreements with Utah Valley University are legally binding contracts between the university and the Internship Provider. Internship Agreements outline the responsibilities and expectations of the students, the provider, and UVU. Additionally, it serves to protect both the university and Internship Provider from improper conduct on either end.

All Internship Providers are required to have an approved agreement on file prior to a student starting their internship. Agreements are valid for five years. You can view the filing date under the List of Internship Providers to see if you have a current agreement on file.  Providers do not need to complete a separate agreement for each student they host. If it is current, you can exit this page.

How is an Agreement Initiated?

Internship Providers are welcome to complete an agreement at any time even if they have yet to hire an intern.   In many cases, a students or a UVU employee will inform providers that they need to complete the agreement by directing them to this page.   Please note that only the UVU Internship Services department and the Internship Provider will need to complete an agreement. Students do not need to sign the agreement. All agreements are completed electronically through Docusign.

What if I have questions or would like to propose addendums?

My organization will not sign an agreement and has our own agreement which needs to be signed.

Please contact the Director of Internship Services and if applicable, inform the student that an agreement needs to be in place before beginning their internship.  Often times these situations can be mutually worked out.

My organization will not sign a UVU agreement and we do not have our own agreement in place.

Unfortunately in this case, we cannot provide interns to your organization because there is no agreement in place by either parties.  

So I do not need to complete an individual agreement for each student performing an internship with my organization?

That is correct.  Agreements serve to cover all students interning with your organization for a period of five years.
