Please Read this comprehensive breakdown of what IS and what is NOT considered service-learning.
If your service is not being done in conjunction with a course and the service site is not in the database, contact the Office of Service-Learning before the service begins in order to have the agency vetted and approved.
Here are the instructions for our new PAPERLESS system on Eagle CareerLink
Either is okay, but it is preferable to complete the form prior to service.
Only as a first-time user of this system.
We encourage students to always save copies for their own records.
Yes, please do submit these paper forms directly to our offices located in the Library on the 4th floor. Or you may mail them to the address found on the bottom of the form. Do not re-create them in Eagle CareerLink.
Your service hours recorded on the paper forms used in the previous system, can be found on your unofficial transcript page, just above your GPA.
Hours earned and recorded via Eagle CareerLink can be found on your profile.
Once the end-date of service is reached, the Eagle CareerLink system will automatically email the agency a request for approval of your hours by the end of that week. Emails will continue to be sent each Friday until the agency responds. If your hours aren't verified a month after completion, please get in touch with your agency representative.

Make sure the agency you choose is a registered non-profit or government agency. If you do not find your agency listed on the Service-Learning Database, please contact email@example.com or call (239) 590-7015/7019 for confirmation BEFORE pursuing service at your chosen site.
The requirement is 80 hours for students entering FGCU as freshmen and sophomores, and 40 hours for students entering as juniors and seniors with 60 or more transferable credit hours. Transfer students please check with your advisors to be sure.
After you have completed an equal number of service hours you may count those training hours as part of your total number of hours of service. If you do not complete the hours of service, then those training hours are forfeited.
No. Only hours served after the date of your admittance to FGCU may be used, provided service follows the appropriate criteria.
Please read our "Serving Safely Guidelines" for additional information.
