Service Medallions

Our Way of Saying Thank You: Students with 100 or more network verified hours through our ServeUTK platform, prior to graduation, will receive a Service Medallion to wear during their commencement exercises, to commemorate their selfless service to our community.

Service Levels:

  • Gold Medallion: 225 Hours or More
  • Silver Medallion: 175-224 Hours
  • Bronze Medallion: 100-174 Hours

Medallions are only awarded during the term in which a student is graduation (i.e., fall 2023 graduates will be awarded their medallion at the end of November and spring 2024 graduates will be awarded their medallion in April).

Please note: To be eligible to receive a service medallion, all impact hours must be verified by the nonprofit you served alongside and network verified by the JCLS staff before the date listed below.

Please also be sure your impacts are shared with the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. If they are not shared with UTK, your request will be delayed. The sharing function is located at the bottom of each impact submission form, and you can share with any group of which you’re a part.

If you have any questions about pending hours, please email

All students who have over 100 network verified hours by the below dates will receive an email from the Jones Center with instructions on how to pick up their medallion.

Students graduating in May 2024 who qualified to receive a service medallion will be notified via email on April 19th. If you believe that you should qualify for a service medallion and did not receive an email, please email us at
