Section II: Enrollment

A.  Who must enroll in CSER?

  1. All residential undergraduate students who are full-time during the fall or spring semester are required to be enrolled in a CSER.  Undergraduate students are considered full-time if they are taking twelve (12) or more credit hours in a given semester.

    Note: This requirement does not apply to Dual-enrolled students unless the student has 12 undergraduate credits during their dual-enrolled semester.

 

B.  When may a student enroll in a CSER?

 

  • Students may enroll during the fall semester, winter break, spring or summer semesters. Students will need the name and email address of the person who will be supervising and evaluating their service before applying online.

    Note: Although CSER is not required during the winter break or summer semester, a CSER earned over the winter break or summer may count for a previous or future semester (See details at Section IV.G.)
  1. FALL SEMESTER
    The LU Serve Fair occurs during the second week of the fall semester. CSER supervisors are invited to represent their area of service and begin the registration process.
    Students are not required to register during the fair, but are encouraged to do so.  Otherwise, they are responsible to submit an application online through ASIST before the Add/Drop deadline.  Students will need the name and email address of the person who will be supervising and evaluating their service before applying online.

    The Add/Drop deadline for the FALL semester is the first Monday in October.  A $10.00 late fee will be added to the student’s Liberty University account after this date.

    Note:
    CSERs REGISTERED FOR IN THE FALL WILL AUTOMATICALLY CARRY OVER TO THE SPRING SEMESTER, BUT NOT THE WINTER BREAK SUMMER SEMESTER. Students must understand that they are making a one-year commitment to the organization when they enroll in the fall semester. If they wish to change CSERs in the spring, they must follow the proper procedures (See Section II.E. below).
     
  2. SPRING SEMESTER
    There is no Registration Fair in the spring semester. Consequently, students enrolling in CSER for the spring semester are responsible to submit an application online through ASIST by the Add/Drop deadline.  Students will need the name and email address of the person who will be supervising and evaluating their service before applying online.

    The Add/Drop deadline for the SPRING semester is the first Monday in March. A $10.00 late fee will be added to the student’s Liberty University account after this date.
     
  3. SUMMER SEMESTER
    Students must submit an application online through ASIST by the Add/Drop deadline.  Students will need the name and email address of the person who will be supervising and evaluating their service before applying online.  A CSER earned during the summer semester can count for any semester needed for graduation. Students may also complete a CSER during the summer if they are behind in the CSER requirements (See Section III.F.).

    The Add/Drop deadline for the SUMMER semester is the first Monday in July.  A $10.00 late fee will be added to the student’s Liberty University account after this date.
     
  4. WINTER BREAK
    Students must submit an application online through ASIST by the Add/Drop deadline.  Students will need the name and email address of the person who will be supervising and evaluating their service before applying online.  A CSER earned during the Winter Break can count for any semester needed for graduation. Students may also complete a CSER during the Winter Break if they are behind in the CSER requirements (See Section III.F.).

    The Add/Drop deadline for Winter Break is the first Monday in January.  A $10.00 late fee will be added to the student’s Liberty University account after this date.
     

C.  Do students need to re-register their fall CSERs in the spring semester?

  • No.  CSERs REGISTERED FOR IN THE FALL WILL AUTOMATICALLY CARRY OVER TO THE SPRING SEMESTER, BUT NOT WINTER BREAK OR THE SUMMER SEMESTER. Students must understand that they are making a one-year commitment to the organization when they enroll in the fall semester.
