Logging Hours

Last updated September 04, 2018

Logging Hours Forms:

  • Individual Service & Volunteer Tracking

  • Group Service & Volunteer Tracking

    • If your group or organization has completed a service event only one person from your group (president or event leader) needs to fill out the group/organization form.
    • However, students wanting a complete log of their individual service hours should also fill out the individual tracking form when they participate in group events.  
    • You may request a report of service hours that you or your group has completed by e-mailing me your request.   

Why Should I Log my Service Hours?

  • Totals are reported in grant applications, evaluations, and to Morningside administration.
  • Get recognized for your service to the community, whether it be through your class, department, school, residence hall, Greek organization, and/or student organization.
  • Discover new opportunities for becoming involved in service.
  • Maintain accurate records of your volunteer hours.  You'll be more competitive for fellowships, scholarships, jobs and graduate school applications.

Logging Hours Helpful Tips:

  • If you are not in an organization you can use the individual record of community service hours form.
  • You cannot count the same hours served for multiple groups/organizations.  Only count the hours for which the service is affiliated with.
  • You may count meetings to plan the activity as part of the service, but not ordinary organizational meetings.
  • Do not count driving time in your total hours (unless you are performing Meals on Wheels service)
  • If the electronic form does not work you may email your hours to Andy Nelson (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address))
