At Missouri Western, service and critical skills development are central to our core mission.

The Center for Service seeks to provide opportunities to learn and serve by connecting students to volunteer opportunities and to recognize the value of that learning by offering elective college credits.

Students can now earn up to three college credits toward their degrees for FREE through their volunteer service.

Earn one credit toward your degree for every 40 hours of community service, up to a maximum of three credits. The credits count toward your degree and may also become part of your co-curricular record.

Earn up to three free credit hours through:

  • Service-learning
  • Volunteerism
  • Involvement
  • Leadership Opportunities
