University Honors Program

Live, Learn, Achieve

Community Service

You can now get credit for your community service participation put on your University Transcript! To get credit, you must complete a minimum of 150 hours over the course of your time at Cal Poly. Hours completed over the summer or other academic breaks still count towards these hours, as long as you get them signed off by as volunteer supervisor or Cal Poly faculty member

The Cal Poly Honors Program wants to make this process as simple as possible for all of its students. The program will keep track of and sign off on all of your hours; just complete this attendance form when you volunteer. This way you will have a record. However, at least one month before you graduate, you will need to submit the Transcript Notation Form to the Center for Service in Action. Learn more about the Transcript Notation.

We also coordinate exciting volunteer events for Honors students throughout the year. See the list of our latest opportunities here!
