ASU Student Placement Agreement Form – Updated

The Arizona State University Student Placement Agreement (SPA) forms are updated and posted on the internship page.  There were some recent changes due to the change in Provost. This document continues to be a requirement for all students receiving academic credit for an internship at ASU.  One signed agreement covers all students at ASU during the defined period of the agreement.  We keeps scanned copies to track current agreements in the Fulton Schools of Engineering.  An updated university wide system is currently in development.

One of the challenges I have seen in summer 2015 is the limited time frame of the SPA.  I have a significant number that are confined to 90 days.  If a student wants to to receive academic credit after the ninety days we have to do another agreement.  Agreements can be signed for up to five years.
