An additional opportunity means that a maximum of 15 hours of service done outside of Rutgers and the New Brunswick community can count toward a student's 30 total hours of community service. To verify whether an opportunity will count as service, you may contact HCServes@echo.rutgers.edu. You may count up to 15 hours of service over the summer during your tenure as an Honors College student (but not as an incoming Honors College student who has not yet begun college).
Non-Rutgers Community Service
Some students may choose to do service outside of the Rutgers and New Brunswick communities. Examples include working with a Habitat for Humanity affiliate in your hometown, tutoring at your high school, or volunteering with your town's church. A maximum of 15 hours served outside of Rutgers will count toward the HC Serves requirement.
