In order to be eligible for UT Promise, students must complete eight (8) hours of community service prior to each semester. High school seniors graduating in 2020 should log their service hours through tnAchieves.* Current UT students and transfer students will track their hours through their campus service tracking site. Only hours completed and submitted between January 1 and July 1, 2020 will count.
Please use the links below to track your service hours:
- UT Knoxville Service Tracking (UT Knoxville Instructions)
- UT Chattanooga Service Tracking (UTC Instructions)
- UT Martin Service Tracking (UT Martin Instructions)
- UT Health Science Center Service Tracking (UTHSC Instructions)
*Please note that while TN Promise has waived the community service deadline for high school seniors, UT Promise will still require 8 hours of community service by July 1. These hours should still be logged through tnAchieves.
Virtual Community Service
This virtual option is only available to current UT students. High school seniors can complete virtual service through tnAchieves. As of now, a virtual option is not available for transfer students since their service hours are not due until Aug.1.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, UT Promise recognizes that completing your service hours may be challenging. We have partnered with stakeholders across the state to offer one-hour service webinars that allows students to earn UT Promise community service hours virtually for the upcoming July 1 deadline.
By watching the webinars, you will accumulate community service hours. Each video will have assessment questions that you must answer to get credit and will account for one (1) hour of community service.
Your virtual service hours will be combined with hands-on service hours submitted through your campus service tracking site. For example, if you submitted 3 hours of hands-on service, you will only need to watch 5 webinars. These webinars serve as an additional resource to complete your service hours; however, if you are able to find hands-on service or already completed your 8 hours of service, you may still submit those hours through your campus service tracking site.
To log your community service hours, log onto your campus Canvas site, visit the UT Promise service course, and select the webinars you would like to watch.
Remember that the deadline to complete all eight of your community service hours is July 1, 2020, and only service completed from Jan. 1, 2020-July 1, 2020 will count for your fall 2020 UT Promise eligibility.
