2022-23 College Corps: Current Student Resources

College Corps will reimburse students for round trip mileage from the Cal State East Bay Hayward Hills campus to their community service site. To receive reimbursement, students must first follow university processes for approved travel. These reimbursements will be tallied and submitted monthly based on the actual number of days the student worked at their community service placement site. The forms will be prepared through the Center for Community Engagement and distributed to students for signature prior to submission. The CCE is not responsible for delayed reimbursements due to a delay in students submitting their community service hours and/or signing their forms. The first reimbursements will be prepared in early October for September travel.

*The first two documents were given to you in Orientation, if you already submitted them to us, you do not need to submit again.

America Learns Timesheet- Alongside the video linked in the Orientation Presentation, feel free to walk through this PowerPoint Presentation on America Learns. One note, the orientation hours should be logged under *CSU East Bay: Training. Your service hours and trainings you complete with your host site will be logged under your community host site (screenshot example below).

If you have not yet completed your Background Check, you will notice that your timesheet that included the August 26th orientation has been blacked out. This is due to the fact that your service cannot start until your Background check has been completed. You can log your orientation hours on September 10th (once your background check has been completed). 

Google Timesheet- You can log your orientation into your google timesheet. You can find your timesheet in the student folder linked below. If your placement has changed and it is no longer correct on your google timesheet, please email Carol.Trost@csueastbay.edu and she can get that updated for you.
