Center for Civic Engagement

Tracking Your Civic Engagement Experiences

The Center for Civic Engagement records student civic engagement experiences on the CougSync database. To record your hours, you have the option of either submitting your hours online or completing and turning in a Record of Civic Engagement form to the CCE.


How to Record Your Hours

  • Record of Civic Engagement Form

    The Record of Civic Engagement form is what you will use to track your individual placement or self-led project hours. Your site supervisor must verify your hours on the lines provided. Their signature can either be on each line or at a diagonal so their signature is only touching each line where you have hours recorded. Turn in this form often to keep your records up-to-date. Please allow two business days for your hours to be entered into CougSync.

  • Online Submission

    The easiest way to submit your service hours is directly in CougSync! All you have to do is complete this form. To complete the form, select the community organization you worked with, what you did and when, and who you worked with for the organization. The CougSync administrator for the community organization you selected will then be sent a message asking them to review your hours. If your organization is not listed under the service partner drop down, you will need to complete a Record of Civic Engagement form to record your hours. If your community organization has not yet signed an affiliation agreement with the CCE, please share this Welcome Letter for Community Partners with them and complete our New Community Partner Request Form.

  • CCE-Led Service Projects

    If you attend a project led by a CCE Project Leader, your hours will be recorded from the form he or she has you complete on the project. For these CCE-led projects, do not submit your hours online or use your own Record of Civic Engagement form. We'll take care of this for you!

  • Group Project Form

    If you set up a group project through the CCE, we will provide you with a group project sign in sheet prior to your project. To request a project for your group, click here.
