This process is central to the CSER program. Upon registration for a CSER, students will need a Liberty University Christian/Community Service Evaluation form (the “blue” form). When the student fulfills their hours for a registered CSER, this form must be completed before the Center for CSER will accept it. Students are responsible to make sure that their exact dates and hours have been logged, that they have done the student reflection and that they have met with their supervisor to receive their final evaluation, grade and supervisor’s signature. IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO RETURN THE COMPLETED FORM TO THE CENTER FOR CSER BY THE POSTED DEADLINE. (This deadline date is posted on the CSER calendar and will be announced via a university-wide e-mail and a Splash page notification within a week of the time it is due at the end of the semester).
Each student will receive a letter grade of A, B, C, D or F, according to the following criteria:
A - student displays exceptional service; excellent attitude; volunteered at least 20 hours
B - displays satisfactory service; punctuality; appropriate attitude; volunteered at least 20 hours
C - displays acceptable service; usually punctual; acceptable attitude; volunteered at least 20 hours
D - displays unsatisfactory service; not punctual; volunteered at least 20 hours
F - designates "failure"; unacceptable service; volunteered less than 20 hours
Note: Supervisors will also be required to validate each student's hours, and write out a brief personal evaluation of each student. No incomplete evaluation sheet will be accepted, and no evaluation form will be accepted without the supervisor's signature. It is the STUDENT'S responsibility to return the final evaluation and grade form to the Center for CSER by the posted deadline. (This deadline date is posted on the CSER calendar and will be announced on the Splash page within a week of the time it is due at the end of the semester).
Students who have questions or concerns regarding their CSER history and status should direct them to the Center for CSER.

All questions regarding schedules, accountability procedures, grades or conflicts of any nature concerning a student's specific CSER should be initially directed to the student's supervisor for that CSER. If a satisfactory solution does not result from this meeting, the student should then contact the Center for CSER for further assistance.
Yes. However, it must meet all previously established criteria (See Section I.A.). Further, the student must complete the appropriate paperwork and receive permission from the Center for CSER. By not getting prior approval the student runs the risk of having their request for credit denied due to their not meeting the established criteria.
A $10.00 late registration fee will be added to the student's Liberty University account for each CSER.
No. The only semester in which a CSER may be applied to a future semester is the summer semester; otherwise, students cannot get ahead in their CSERs. (See next question for how summer credits will be applied). Additional CSERs done while the student is taking BWVW (except for summer CSERs) will not count toward future requirements either, unless the student has failed either or both BWVWs (See Section II.B. above).
Summer CSERs may be used for a previous or future semester, however, only one CSER per summer semester may be applied toward a future semester.
Grades received in BWVW 101 and BWVW 102 will become a permanent part of students GPAs. Grades received for CSER will not affect their GPA, however, they will be recorded as a standard letter grade and become a permanent part of the student's school transcript.
