The Campus Service Work Education Program (CSWEP) was established, in compliance with the goals and outcomes of the Enhancing Financial Literacy component of Title III, to address and provide a viable solution to the dilemma of student loan delinquency.
The Campus Service Work Education Program is a 1 credit hour course that students must register for. Students will receive a grade based on the following: attendance, punctuality, focus, work quality, communication skills, and dependability. As outlined in the course syllabus, a seventy percent or better work performance grade will constitute successful completion of CSWEP. Students with grades that fall below a seventy will be placed on probation and cannot participate in extracurricular activities (for the following semester). Once registered for the course, students will be assigned a worksite and supervisor, to which they are required to work for the duration of the semester. Worksites are located on campus as well as throughout the Arkansas Baptist College community at-large.
Additionally, students will be required to attend mandatory workshops concerning loan borrowing, indebtedness, and financial literacy. All CSWEP students will be required to attend two seminars per semester.
