Making it count: Why track hours?
Norton College of Medicine requires that all matriculated students participating in CEL opportunities track the number of hours served using the Noblehour platform. This platform will provide students with the most up-to-date information on approved CEL opportunities. Tracking your hours is critical to ensure an accurate assessment of the CEL student outcomes. Please note that only approved CEL programs will be assessed.
How to track your hours
To get started, students will be required to set up a profile using their Upstate email address. Upon matriculation, students will be provided with instructions to set up a Noblehour profile and a list of approved CEL opportunities that will count on the CEL Brightspace page.
NCOM students may use Noblehour to log volunteer hours spent at non-CEL-approved opportunities (for example service opportunities from learning communities or student organizations). However, those volunteer hours will not count toward the CEL requirements. All Noblehour users can run individual reports of their volunteer hours whenever needed.
