University of South Florida
We believe learning extends beyond the four walls of the classroom. The people and
places in our communities offer lessons that complement and reinforce classroom-based
learning. Students will accumulate 50 hours of community service while at USF, in their hometown or Tampa Bay community. Service is at the heart of
the Judy Genshaft Honors College. Care and concern for others motivates the administration,
faculty and staff of the College, but we also seek to model for students how intellectually
and professionally rewarding service can be.
Community service hours are logged on the Co-Curricular Transcript through BullSync.
Service hours may overlap with those required for the Global Citizen Award, or other pre-professional goals. Use BullSync to find service and log your hours.
Note: Having service hours confirmed on BullSync may take several days. Confirmation
will arrive by email.
First-year students admitted Fall 2019 onward and all students admitted Spring 2020
onward must also complete the Community Service Canvas Course (see below).
You must pass the course with a grade of 80% or higher in order to receive credit
for completion. Join the course here. Learning Outcomes will help you:
Note: While students admitted prior to Fall 2019 are not required to complete our
Canvas course, we strongly recommend using it as a guide before, during, and after
your service experience.
Upon completion of the required hours, upload all documents of service as a single
PDF file into the Community Service Form. Hours logged through BullSync are easily compiled for submission in the form.
