Internship Site Agreements

In order for Evergreen students to complete an internship at your site we require that there be an institutional agreement between your internship site and The Evergreen State College. Please note: Site Agreements are NOT required for internships sponsored by any official governmental agency of the State of Washington.

If your site is not an official governmental agency sponsored by the State of Washington, and you or a representative from your site have not already done so in the last year, please complete and have an authorized party at your site sign and return the Internship Site Agreement (PDF) to the Academic Deans Office at The Evergreen State College.
