Non-Degree Seeking Adult Volunteers

For people who are finished with their formal education. If you are or will be enrolled in college, technical school, or a post-graduate program during the next year, please apply as a Degree Seeking Volunteer.

Step one

Complete a volunteer application.

  • Please see the Important Dates timeline on the right.

Completing the application will give you access to the Volunteer Information Center (VIC), required for step two.

Step two

Call the Volunteer Services Office to sign up for a mandatory Information Session. (352) 265-0360.

  • Information session spots are limited and fill up fast. We recommend that you fill out an application and sign up for an information session as soon as the application is available.
  • Applicants who do not attend a mandatory Information Session are not eligible to volunteer that semester and will need to reapply for a future semester.

Step three

After scheduling an information session, visit Volunteer Requirements and ensure you have documentation of all the required immunizations.

Step four

After attending the Information Session, you will be invited to complete the rest of the Volunteer Requirements and schedule an appointment to be placed in a volunteer role.
