CSL Course Design


In AY 2002-2003, SF State’s Academic Senate passed the Community Service Learning (CSL) Designation Policy, S03-224, which states that CSL courses be identified in the University Bulletin and in Class Schedules to help students identify CSL courses. ICCE also lists CSL courses on its website.



To see the policy in detail, please download the pdf below:

Each semester’s Class Schedule will indicate by footnote which section includes the CSL component. More than 47 departments currently offer CSL opportunities.

The Designation policy also provides a procedure for recording the total number of hours students serve each semester on their Official Transcripts. CSL hours help SF State students with applications for scholarships and awards, admissions to graduate or professional programs, and demonstrates career experience to future employers.
