CCSC Service Commitment

Congratulations on being a CCSC Scholar!

At Grand Canyon University we believe quality education and faith can coexist in the 21st century. With the Canyon Christian Schools Consortium, GCU has established a partnership dedicated to enhancing the Christian educational experience of all parties involved, most importantly you, the student! As a CCSC Scholarship recipient, you are required to participate in community service activities each semester.

Below is a variety of service options to choose from. Many of the service opportunities listed are offered on more than just a single date, and run throughout the semester. Once you have selected an opportunity that you would like to participate in, please email the contact listed and properly register. It is required that your service opportunity be selected solely from this list to complete your scholarship requirement this semester.

In order to receive credit for volunteering, you must fill out the Requirement Log and have it signed by an event supervisor. Signed forms should be turned into your student services advisor.
