Am I supposed to fill out a form to receive credit for any SALT experience I participate in?

No forms are required to receive credit for your SALT experiences. All SALT experiences are recorded as courses through Banner/ DAR. However, when participating in a mission trip for SALT credit, you will be required to do additional academic reflections in order recieve your credit. Each SALT experience has its own record keeping method (i.e. reflection assignments for mission trips, logs and reflections for internships, a letter grade for a SALT course), and the SALT Program keeps track of this information through the registrar's office.




Am I only allowed to participate in Lipscomb "sponsored" SALT experiences?

Students are encouraged, but not required to participate in Lipscomb "sponsored" SALT experiences. The benefit of participating in one of these experiences is that that are already established, and most of the leg work is already done for you.

If you have a particular service project or long standing commitment with a nonprofit agency, you are welcome to contact the SALT Center regarding an independent study-type SALT experience for SALT credit. However, we encourage you to participate in university planned experiences whenever possible.

The following are types of SALT experiences:

Tier I - SALT one-time projects
Tier II - SALT course
Tier III - SALT internship, cooperative (independent study), mission trip
Tier IV - SALT capstone (program approval required - SALT Scholars only)
