Log Your Hours

Student Leadership and Civic Engagement defines community service for students as the process of engaging in volunteer activities without pay to help give back to their community. Students receive some benefit by learning more about how their service makes a difference in the lives of the service recipients and its impact in the community. (Furco, 1996). 

Please keep this definition in mind when logging your service hours, and reach out to SLCE at slce@uic.edu or 312-996-4500 if you are unsure if your volunteer experience can be logged as service hours.

Follow these steps to log your service hours:

  1. Log on to service.uic.edu using your netID and password.
  2. Click the "Add Hours" button located in the top menu bar.
  3. Enter “Hour Type”: click “yes” if you are entering hours from an opportunity listed on the site, and click “no” if you are adding hours from an outside opportunity.
  4. Add remaining information and click "Submit Hour Entry".

Students who log 100 or more hours between July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021 are eligible to receive the President's Volunteer Service Award and will be recognized in the Chancellor's Student Service and Leadership Awards Ceremony.
