Check the box labeled "Service Learning Section" in the KRIS course search system or look for sections designated "service learning option" or "service learning requirement" under the class notes section. Not every section of the courses listed below offers a service learning opportunity; please go through the KRIS system to make sure that the section you have registered for offers a service learning endorsement. In order for a course to be designated a service learning endorsed course, the instructor must go through service learning endorsement training and request their section be listed as a service learning experience.
Service learning endorsement
Students are able to obtain a service learning endorsement on their official transcripts at KCC. There are several classes in a wide variety of subjects that include service learning endorsements.
KCC students graduating from the 2012-13 academic catalog with an Associate in Arts, Science, General Studies, International Studies, Elementary Education or Criminal Justice are required to complete a service learning experience. Talk with your academic advisor or the service learning manager for more information about graduation requirements.
