Designating a Course as ASL

Academic service learning courses can be designated in the course catalog each semester by following a simple procedure. This designation process allows students to choose whether to take a course with an ASL component, is part of an active learning faculty community, and can provide valuable data that will help the university with its accreditation reports and meet its continuous improvement goals.


ASL Course Designation Procedure

  1. Fill out an ASL course designation form. Submit the form online or print and send to the Center for Student Enrichment (1205 University Center).
  2. The application will be reviewed by the Academic Service Learning Advisory Board and forwarded to the registrar.
  3. Once approved, courses can be designated in the course scheduling book.

Note: Should a faculty member decide to “service-ize” a course for select students after a course has begun, this can be accomplished by using contracts such as is currently done for the Honors Program. In this case, the faculty member will send the ASL Advisory Board the course designation form and a copy of the contract(s).
