Service Credit Policy, 2019-2020

National Honor Society (NHS) members have the opportunity to earn a service credit on their transcript if they meet the service requirements of the club. In order to earn the credit, the following requirements must be met:

  1. Members must complete 8 volunteer hours over the course of their senior year.

  2. Summer hours will not be counted. Members who were inducted as juniors can earn hours starting on the first day of school (8/23/19). Members who are inducted as seniors can earn hours starting on the date they are admitted to NHS.

  3. Members must participate in at least one NHS-sponsored volunteer event over the course of the year.

  4. Members are responsible for documenting hours from outside events using the form provided on the NHS website. Documentation of hours must be submitted no later than one week before the last day of school.

  5. Members may not double-count required hours from other service groups. The club advisors will have the final say in determining what is considered double-counting.

  6. Members may not count hours worked for BSH student organizations or athletics programs where they are a member.

  7. If members are unsure whether an outside volunteer opportunity can be counted towards the service credit, they should check with the club advisors before participating in the event.

  8. Members who attend every NHS meeting will receive credit for one volunteer hour. However, this hour does not count as the NHS-sponsored volunteer event.

  9. NHS Officers (President, Vice President, and Secretary) must earn all 8 of their hours through NHS-sponsored events.
