Why log service hours?

  •  Logging hours in TitanLink ensures your service hours can be verified by CSUF for graduate or professional school and/or job searches.
  • Logged service hours can be found in one convenient place: your Titan Pride Record!
  • Service hours help your student organization win Tuffy’s Awards.
  • Accurate tracking of service hours is tied to benefits like grants and funding that will create more opportunities and financial aid for CSUF students.

What counts as service?

  • Service hours  are earned for time spent volunteering, or the giving of time and energy, that benefits a community other than your own.
    • Some examples of approvable hours are:
      • Serving food at a shelter
      • Watching children unrelated to you at your church daycare
      • Blood Drive donations
      • Beach clean up
      • Internship hours (unpaid)
    • What does not qualify as volunteering?
      •  Donating money or items will not earn service hours. Your organization can track philanthropic dollars through other means but not through service hours. 
      • Fundraising for your club. You, as a member of your club, benefit from this. However, if you are fundraising and 100% of the proceeds to a charitable organization, we will approve the time spent as service hours.
