Graduation Awards

Every time you perform community service, whether as an individual, as part of an organization, or for a class, it gets recorded when you log your hours at the OCCE.  What ever amount of service you perform, it all can be recorded on your co-curricular transcript.  All students graduating with a Certificate, an Associate's or Bachelor's degree are eligible, based on the number of community service hours completed to receive additional recognition with a Community Service Leader Award. The Community Service Leader levels are Merit (bronze), Excellence (silver), and Distinction (gold).
