Step 4 | After you are enrolled in the Service Learning course, you will need to make arrangements with the Business Office to cover the course tuition. Please refer to the college's Tuition and Fee schedule.

Step 5 | Contact your Faculty Mentor to schedule a meeting during the first week of the term you are enrolled in the Service Learning course.

Step 6 | Complete the   Student/Community Partner Agreement Form and have your Faculty Mentor forward it to the Office of Strategic Learning Initiatives before the Drop/Refund deadline.
