Co-Curricular Transcript FAQs

What is a Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT)?

It is an official university document to provide each student with an official record of co-curricular and community involvement activities while at UNCG and is verified by Student Affairs, organization advisors and other approved staff/offices.

The Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) will provide each student with an official record of:

  • Leadership activities and organizational experiences
  • Professional development and educational training
  • Community Service and Engagement

You build your own CCT by submitting a membership request to join an organization or by inputting participation in an activity.

 

Why Would I Want One?

The Co-Curricular Transcript can be used as a supplement to a resume, scholarship applications, and graduate school applications. Studies have shown employers are looking for employees who have documented and proven “practical competency” or the ability to work with others. Involvement in leadership activities also provides a connection to campus life.

What activities can be included?

Activities included on the Co-Curricular Transcript:

  • Leadership Development – organization, activity, conference or program
  • Educational and Skill Development – participation in any co-curricular learning experiences – i.e. workshops, training programs, or volunteer experiences – related to personal or professional development
  • Student Organizations and Activities Participation – membership in any organization, club, activity, or program that requires sustained participation
  • Community Service and Civic Engagement – participation in activities that make a difference on our campus and in our communities

 

Should my employment experience be included?

Employment experience should be listed on your resume rather than a CCT. If the position is connected to your educational experience but not part of an academic program (Ex. workstudy, paraprofessional positions, internships for non-credit, etc.) this may be something that you want included.

 

Why should I be interested in maintaining my CCT?

Participating in the program is extremely valuable and it will help you:

  • Plan your personal goals
  • Consider your career, professional and financial development
  • Manage your time
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Increase intercultural and global understanding
  • Supplement your scholarship process

These experiences assist you in gaining career-related experience, making a difference in campus and community, gaining new and valuable relationships, and developing leadership and communication skills.
