How can I do this and everything else?
A service project isn't busy work added on to existing work. Because it is an important part of your learning it is often substituted for another major assignment. Or it might become a part of your research. If you're concerned, contact your instructor before enrolling to learn what's expected of you.
What scholarships are available?
Many scholarships have service as part of their requirements, such as the Longview Hispanic scholarship, the Kevin O'Neil Phillips scholarship and the Plaza Rotary scholarship. See our scholarship booklet for a complete list.
Who can take component courses?
The stand-alone service-learning class is meant to piggyback with another class that you are taking or have just taken. If you want to enroll in one, you should contact the instructor to see if this is right for you. You and your instructor will develop a project and there will be an assignment that pulls your experience together.
What companies and organizations can I work with?
Go to the Partners tab for a current list of our community partners.
How do I keep track of hours?
You'll fill out an online hourly log sheet. Print it and get it signed by someone with the agency you served.
What other service activities are available at MCC?
Check out the campus Life and Leadership volunteer activities on each of the MCC classes. Many campus clubs also offer chances to serve.
