Elevate at Loyola

Transcript notations

Students who do service learning for a class at Loyola are eligible for transcript notations.  It is important to acknowledge students' service learning efforts on their permanent academic records.  This formally recognizes their contributions to the wider community, and it can be valuable for resumes, job interviews, and graduate school.  Students will receive a transcript notation if:

  • they document at least 15 hours of service learning per semester on either a timesheet (placements) or an hours report (projects);
  • they receive a satisfactory performance evaluation from a supervisor or community partner representative;
  • the service learning activity takes place in partnership with an identifiable agency or organization which has a signed Memorandum of Understanding on file with Loyola; and
  • service learning activities are performed in conjunction with a credit-bearing course which is properly designated in LORA

Here is the format of a service learning transcript notation:
