The Scholarship and New Student Financial Aid Center will retrieve completed, validated hours on a monthly basis from volunteer.uc.edu.
Paper Community Service Report Form
Scholars who volunteer at service agencies (particularly those outside of the Cincinnati area) not utilizing the online system will need to submit the paper Community Service Report Form*.
The type of service provided is noted, and the scholar must sign the report form. A non-student representative of the agency or organization will also sign off on the service entry.
In some cases, service providers prefer the ease of completing a paper validation v. the online validation process as they may not be equipped with ready access to computers.
Only use the paper submission for hours NOT reported and validated as completed online.
Forms are submitted to the
Scholarship & New Student Financial Aid Center
340 University Pavilion
You do not have to wait until the entire form is completed before submitting it. It is also wise to make a copy of your report form(s) for your own record prior to submission.
Service Hour Review
While there is no requirement to submit hours each term, scholars are encouraged to submit their hours as they complete them in order to avoid problems at the end of the year.
Service reported as complete via the online system will be reviewed and posted to your renewal record on a monthly basis. Students submitting paper service reports are asked to submit them routinely throughout the academic year as well.
In cases when hours are not acceptable, scholars will be notified via email when the service is reviewed monthly from the online system or generally within 2 weeks of submitting a paper report form. Students with questions on the appropriateness of hour for scholarship renewal should always talk with the Cincinnatus office.
