The Service Learning Program recognizes the learning experience gained through voluntary service and affirms the Mennonite heritage of concern for one’s neighbor. Students entering an approved voluntary service program or having at least seven months left in a service program may apply for admission to Bethel’s Service Learning Program.
Students completing seven months or more of voluntary service may earn up to 14 hours of college credit. An experience of eight weeks to seven months may earn up to four hours of credit. In order to receive credit, the student must meet certain conditions including an exit interview with the registrar and return to campus as a Bethel student. For further information and application forms, consult the registrar.
