Affiliation Agreements


Required for non-paid internships requiring student liability insurance. 

Purpose

An affiliation agreement is a written contract that lays out the legal expectations of both our campus and the site when a student is interning or training at a site for course credit and the site requires student liability insurance for the student.

Asking as to whether or not the site requires student liability insurance is critical when planning your internship. Learn more about this insurance.
