Activity Point Requirement

How to log and track your points

Your goal is to earn 20 total activity points throughout the duration of the Medallion program.

  1. Download the Official Medallion/Badge Activity Points Log, which you will use to keep track of your point activities.
  2. Complete an entry on the log, with official verification of your participation, for each point you earn.
  3. Make sure you include specific details about the event in the details section and that your verification clearly shows which event you participated in. For virtual events, paste the verification into the document as part of the entry for the event.
  4. Upload your log ONCE PER SEMESTER on the submissions page. Uploading every semester is required so that we may verify your entries and signatures, and so that we have a digital record of your log in the event that you lose it. Uploads are due by the last day of each finals week.

How to correctly earn live-virtual points

As of March 2020, all Medallion students may earn activity points by attending live virtual events.

  • Virtual events must be entered into the activity log. Please remember, activity logs must be submitted at the end of each semester.
  • During virtual events, students must take a screenshot with a timestamp to receive credit. Two screenshots are expected, one at the beginning and end of the event. Points will not be awarded without screenshots. Images are to be pasted in the verification line of your activity log and must clearly show which event you participated in. 
  • We recommend students take notes when participating during virtual events. This will help you reference back to them when creating your e-portfolios before graduation.


One-point opportunities

Visit the following departments or programs for one-point opportunities. Additionally, you'll receive updates from us about specific event opportunities. Make sure to follow us on social media (@goglobalFIU).

Tuesday Times

The Tuesday Times Roundtable (TTR) is held every week during the Fall and Spring semesters and should be your primary event to attend. This event is held every Tuesday from 12:30pm-1:30pm. All Global Learning Medallion students must earn 4 activity points (20% of total activity points) by attending live in-person and/or remote TTR.

Global Learning Medallion students with a class or work related conflict may contact the Assistant Director, Ana Prado at for more information. 

Other event opportunities

Check the event calendars for each department or center below for opportunities.

Point acknowledgment

Students should note that they will only receive credit for events from the above departments or events shared on social media or emailed to them by the Global Learning Medallion email list. Other point log entries will not be honored.

Multi-point opportunities

Student organizations

5 points will be awarded to students who have participated in FIU clubs and organizations if the following criteria are all met:

  • Participation is in a leadership role (executive board, chair, or coordinator of any specific event or project)
  • Participation lasted for the duration of at least one full semester
  • The mission of the club or organization is clearly international or intercultural or otherwise clearly fits the learning outcomes promoted by the Global Learning Medallion (global awareness, global perspective, and global engagement).

To submit your points, please log your club participation on your points log along with the dates of participation and the signature of the club advisor.

Students must also have advisors send an email to verifying your role and responsibility.

If you are unsure if your club meets these criteria, please contact us with further information on your club.

Please note that students who log points for their leadership role in an approved organization will NOT be able to also log points for attending events hosted by that organization during semesters when they held a position.

Center for Leadership and Service Programs

*Programs are application based and are accepted only during scheduled recruitment periods.

FIU in DC Programs

A DC Fly In is a multi-day, fast-paced dynamic learning experience. It entails traveling to Washington D.C. to experience think tanks, meet with representatives of the federal government, interact with national and international non-governmental agencies, and learn about specific policy issues. For more information, please email Eric Feldman, Associate Director of FIU in DC at

Second Capstone and short Education Abroad

If you participated in an Education Abroad trip or a global internship lasting 19 days or fewer, this experience will count as a 5 point activity.

If you did two Capstone experiences (such as a study abroad and internship), the second experience will count as a 5 point activity.

Policy on retroactive and repeated activities

You may only earn 5 points one time from each activity. For example, you could earn 10 points by participating in both Model UN and Alternative Breaks, but not by doing Alternative Breaks twice or participating in the same club for multiple semesters.

Some previously completed multi-point experiences will be considered for approval on a case-by-case basis if done within the past 2 years. No retroactive credit for 1-point activities will be considered.
