Reporting Service Hours

TAMIU encourages all students to maintain current records of their participation in volunteer service by reporting all service hours to SCCE via Trailblazers (http://trailblazers.tamiu.edu).  Whether your participation is an independent effort, student organization involvement, or a Scholarship/Honors program requirement, we can assist you in tracking all volunteer service you complete as a college student.
