The Center for Leadership & Social Change / ServScript Program
Through the ServScript Program at Florida State University, students can record their service to the community on their official FSU transcript. Your transcript is an official government document, and a permanent record of your academic achievements as well as a direct reflection of your college career to potential employers and graduate and professional schools.
The ServScript Program accepts service hours that are completed each semester. All hours for a given semester must be submitted online (my.fsu.edu, student services, ServScript Application) by the last day of the semester no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.
Please note: Your service hours MUST be entered in the same semester that you complete them.
