Service Hour Reporting

* Instructions for using Get Connected 

  • All USM students have a profile on Get Connected (use your USM email: and reset your password.
  • Departments or organizations can request or manage their own user groups so that when students submit service hours they can report them to your organizations. Use these groups to sign up for service opportunities as a team & record group service hours. 
  • Submit a request to list your volunteer opportunity on Get Connected. It can be private - just for a specific group of students - or open to everybody. This allows you to track service hours for this opportunity. 

Students who need verification of service hours should still have volunteer supervisors sign a Volunteer Service Log. We "approve" hours that adhere to certain guidelines but we cannot verify that you were present for non-CCE or Volunteer USM programming without a volunteer service log. To request proof of service, you will need to have checked in at CCE or Volunteer USM programming, or provide us with a volunteer service log. 

Request Volunteers

If you are looking for volunteers, please use the Get Connected database to create a profile and post OPPORTUNITIES (also called needs). Volunteers can sign up for opportunities directly through this service.
