What is a co-curricular record and what are the benefits of having one?
A co-curricular record (CCR) is an official university transcript that documents approved extracurricular activities and learning experiences that take place out of the classroom.
Each activity on a CCR is linked to learning outcomes outlined in the University Learning Charter to highlight your experienced-based knowledge and skills.
Having a CCR is a useful addition to your resume and cover letter for when you apply for jobs, graduate studies programs, different colleges, or other universities.
For more general information about CCR, please visit the University of Saskatchewan’s website here.
