Cord Points: Process for how an SDSU student with a declared sciences major/minor can start accumulating cord points:

1. Be sure to check the calendar posted on the CSSC main website, as all service event listed on the calendar are approved for cord points. Website is cssc.sdsu.edu, please note that this website cannot be reached simply by googling “cssc sdsu”. As of right now, the calendar is being finalized and will soon be uploaded onto the site, accessible under the tab “Calendar of Events.”

For the time being, we can stick with the community service opportunities offered by the Pre-Dental Club (or any other club, feel free to double-check with me to see if the event is approved for cord points.) The service events offered by PDC will be featured on the CSSC calendar once it is up.

2. After completing your shift at the service event, proceed to fill out a CSSC Cord Point form. For the Description field, briefly list what the event was and your duties as a service volunteer. Lastly, for the signature field, have your Club President, Club VP of Service, or the supervisor of the event sign you off with a simple Name, Date, and Signature.

Note: This cord point form can also be found in the “Forms” category of your College of Sciences Homeroom under your Blackboard page.

Reminder: Every 2 hours of an approved service event equates to 1 cord point. After successfully accumulating 30 cord points, you will be awarded a CSSC Graduation Cord.

3. Finally, please submit the form to me at either the CSSC Weekly Meetings (Wed, 1-2PM, 3rd Floor Union, Council Chambers) or at the bi-weekly Pre-Dental Club meetings (Mon, 4:30-5:30, 4th Floor Calpulli).
If you are unable to attend these meetings, please contact Andy at atang@sdsu.edu and a different time will be set up based on availability. Also, if you see Andy on campus, feel free to ask him any questions or turn in your completed forms.

I have attached the meeting’s PowerPoint slides and forms.

Reminder that meetings are held biweekly in the Calpulli Center, fourth floor, conference room 3. If you have any question feel free to contact us.

Alright guys, that’s it for now!
