Community Service Requirements and Policies

To satisfy the Macaulay requirement for service:

  • You must complete a minimum of 30 hours of community service, with a minimum of 10 hours during each of your first three years at Macaulay. Individual campuses may require additional community service hours.
  • You may not count an activity for which you are compensated in any form (e.g. monetary, material gifts or service in-kind) towards your community service requirement. Unpaid internships, including those at nonprofit organizations or government agencies, are not considered community service.
  • Political campaigning or participating in religious service such as proselytizing, faith-based instruction, or other acts as an expression of faith are not considered community service.
  • You must submit an online Community Service Verification Form documenting your completed community service, to be approved by your MHC honors advisor.
