Directions for getting a SL transcript distinction (for optional SL)

New for Fall 2017: Students can sign up for a transcript distinction if they are in a class that offers a service-learning option (see SL Course List for optional classes).  To get the distinction, students should register for the course’s O-credit “Service-Learning Experience” (same class number plus a “SO” e.g. B2C 297SO), just like students would register for normal class. Students will have until the end of the 5th week to register, and no additional cost or credit is accrued.

Detailed directions:

To register for a transcript distinction for your SL, navigate to your Student Center and Enroll in the “SO” SL experience.
