Co-Curricular Record

What is the Co-Curricular Record?

The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is an official record of university-approved and facilitated activities that support student development in venues that are not for academic credit. Existing as a document that is separate from the Academic Transcript, the CCR is a clear statement of involvement in activities that support holistic student development. The CCR is managed through Student Life, located in 225 University Centre. Your CCR can be accessed on UMCommunityLINK and for further details on using UMCommunityLINK, please refer to our Engagement Opportunities page.  You can order an official copy of your CCR at no cost through UMCommunityLINK.

How Can the CCR Help?

The CCR is a resource that can be used when applying to graduate or professional programs as well as applying for employment opportunities.  It is expected by recruiters and employers that you have the appropriate academic credentials and therefore are looking at what you have been involved with outside of the classroom, and how you've developed transferable skills particular to the program or job you are applying for.

The CCR offers you a full listing of your co-curricular involvements as well as tools to customize your CCR formatting depending on the situation you plan on using it in.  The CCR also gives you the option of writing a reflection on each notation listed, in which you can express how a particular activity has helped develop personal and professional skills sought after by recruiters and employers.  The additional resources below can assist you in connecting learning outcomes to the activities you have participated in.

CCR Application Process:

The CCR application process is for activities that have not already been approved by the CCR Review Committee.  Once approved, activities are recognized as official University of Manitoba co-curricular activities for 3 years, at which point, they must adhere to a review by the committee once again.

Please read this guide before filling out the CCR application form.  Once you submit your application, please be patient as the CCR Review Committee reviews your application.  You may be contacted with initial feedback that provides suggestions on how to enhance your application before it reaches the CCR Review Committee.  See below for additional resources in regards to describing learning outcomes and leadership skills.
