Information for Current Students

First-year students will find the required research and community service contracts and logs. The contracts are due at the beginning of the year, whereas the logs are due once the hours have been completed. Make sure you return these to Marillac SB36.

Third-year students use Time2Track to keep track of externship hours. The monthly totals (table and pie chart) are due to Marillac SB36 the first week after the end of the month for the previous month. They must be signed by the student and the supervisor. Hours do not count for forms that are not returned on time. Students are required to complete at least 750 hours on externship.
