OUTSIDE HOURS RESOURCES
Outside Hours Form
The Outside Hours Form is required when you wish to submit hours from outside sources. You may submit up to 8 hours toward the 20 total hours required.
Members are required to complete a total of 20 hours of service, 8 of which may be from outside sources (i.e. through other UTD organizations or volunteering individually).
