Transportation Time Credit

All students who regularly travel off-campus for service learning are entitled to a 10% transportation credit toward service learning hours.  This means that 10% of a student's total required hours can be counted toward transportation.  For example, if a student must do 20 hours of service learning, 2 hours can be counted toward transportation.  If a student documents 18 hours of on-site service time, requirements have been met.
