Important Dates

Signing up on time for service learning is extremely important. The sign-up window to choose a Service Learning site is September 4th - September 11th. Signing up on time allows students and community agencies the proper time to connect, establish expectations, and build a relationship. Therefore, after September 11th, late sign-ups will be considered but not ​guaranteed and will have to be done by making an appointment with the Directors. Students will be placed at an appropriate site. After September 27th, the student will be responsible for securing their own placement or will need to drop the class.
