What Counts As Service?

Northern Kentucky University defines service as:
"Work provided by an individual or group to the benefit of others in which academic or financial credit is not received."
Students can complete service on or off of campus to recieve credit. Service hours are recorded from May to April each year. 


  • Victor's Volunteers

    Student Engagement wants to recognize all of the service that Northern Kentucky University students give to the campus and local community. Any student who completes and logs at least 25 hours in a year (May - April) is designated as a Victor's Volunteer. Find more information about this program on this page.
