Internship Requirements

UCLA Extension Career Services may approve paid and unpaid internships if the opportunity is a match with one of our academic programs offering an internship course. The employer, the student participating in the internship, and the UCLA Extension designate must complete the required Internship Agreement prior to the start of the internship. Our philosophy on unpaid internships is in line with the UCLA Extension Internship Policy (full text here) and the NACE Guide to Internships. Employers hiring international students for full-time, part-time, and internship positions must comply with federal regulations related to CPT, OPT, and on-campus employment.
