Due Dates & Late Policies

Students must complete their service hours before these dates. In order to receive credit for completed service, the student must submit hours online, turn in verification of the hours along with some official document from the agency where the student worked. The verification may be turned in as soon as the service is completed - any time BEFORE the due date.

As of October 2006, the following are the procedures regarding incomplete Holy Cross Christian Service Projects   (i.e. service is done, but verification form is not turned in/service is not completed/ some service has been done, but does not fulfill the school requirement/student has done no service).

If students have not completed their Holy Cross Christian Service Projects by the due date:  Campus Ministry will meet with the student and give him/her a letter outlining the penalties for late service. This letter must be signed by parent and student and returned to Campus Ministry within 2 days of receipt.
