Are students required to fill out a form in order to receive credit for any SALT experience they participate in?

 

No forms are required to receive credit for any SALT experiences. All SALT Experiences, curricular or co-curricular, are recorded as courses through Banner/DAR. Each SALT experience has its own record keeping method (i.e. reflections for mission trips, logs and reflections for internships, a letter grade for SALT courses). The SALT program keeps track of this information through the Registrar's office to make sure the records are recorded in the students' DAR.

 



 


Are there specific guidelines for students who wish to take part in an independent study-type SALT experience which is not "sponsored" by Lipscomb?

Students are encouraged to participate in Lipscomb "sponsored" SALT experiences. The benefit of participating in these experiences is that they are already established, and most of the leg work is already done in designing and planning for the experience.

If students have a particular service project or long standing commitment with a nonprofit agency, they are welcome to contact the SALT Center regarding an independent study-type SALT experience for SALT credit. However, students are encouraged 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)


Where can students find a comprehensive list of suggested activities/opportunities for Tiers I-IV?
