Every daytime full-time undergraduate student enrolled at Palm Beach Atlantic University
participates in Workship. There are no exemptions. Students must complete 45 hours
of volunteer community service in a 501(c)3 non-profit agency, church, academic school,
or US government organization per school year. Service that aligns with the Christian
commitment and core values of the University will be counted as Workship Hours.
How many hours are required?
45 hours must be completed every school year with a 501(c)3 non-profit agency, church,
academic school, or US government organization. That is an average of 1.5 hours per
the 32 weeks you’re in class. Students should anticipate completing at least 23 hours
per semester to be on track.
What if my hours exceed the minimum?
Hours roll over once you exceed the required yearly minimum. Don’t stop serving when
you meet your requirement!
Can I submit hours served over the summer?
Incoming students may count community service hours that were completed three months
prior to the beginning of classes; June 1st for those entering in the fall semester
and October 1st for those entering in the spring semester.
