Practicum/Transcript Notation

Participating in service-learning through the Shriver Center enhances a student’s resume and their contribution also appears on their official academic transcript. Every student who participates in service-learning receives a zero credit practicum notation on their transcript to reflect their semester of engagement in the community. With structured opportunities to reflect upon service, students are able to learn through an exchange of experiences while providing quality service to the community. In addition to the 096 Practicum, students also have the opportunity to take service based, credit-bearing courses offered through the Shriver Center and other academic departments including  Honors; Modern Language, Linguistics & Intercultural Communication; Information Systems; and Sociology. Students will earn a grade and academic credit for this work as well as the service-learning practicum notation.
