The set of links at left will explain the entire process in detail. However, the basic guidelines are:
The Master Internship Agreement is a legally binding contract that protects the student, the experience provider, and the University. It outlines the responsibilities of each party during an internship. By having the document in place, all registered BYU-Idaho interns are covered by a $1 million liability insurance policy.
As noted in the Master Agreement, a few of your basic responsibilities would be to provide supervision, meaningful opportunities & responsibilities, and valuable training to BYU-Idaho interns. Some departments may ask you for a mid-experience evaluation; instructions to complete an end-of-experience evaluation will also be emailed to you from the Internship Office.
Compensation is to be defined by provider and intern prior to employment start date. The employer has no legal obligation to pay the intern; however, the level of compensation offered strongly correlates with the quality of candidates who apply for the position. Pay is usually commensurate with experience and industry standards.
Responsibilities vary by state. Please contact your state's Workman's Compensation Program, or click here for a link to your state's website.
Sometimes misunderstandings occur - it is generally wise to discuss the issue with the intern to ensure that they know there is a problem, and what they need to do to correct the situation. Each student is assigned a faculty coordinator to oversee their academic experience and offer further instruction if necessary. If any problems arise, please contact our office and we will either assist you with the issue, or refer you to the intern's faculty coordinator for follow-up.
