Co-curricular record

Develop the essential skills employers are looking for — communication, leadership, collaboration and more — by participating in co-curricular activities.

Then track, reflect on and showcase those skills through your co-curricular record (CCR) — an official document that complements your academic transcript.

Your CCR will help you feel more prepared to talk about your skills and experiences both on your resumé and during interviews.

Get involved, get skills, get credit

You’re probably earning CCR credit already.

If you volunteer on campus, belong to a club, tutor a classmate and lots more, log in to My Career Hub and make it official by adding it to your record.

If you don’t see your activity, get it approved and add it.

Use the Co-Curricular Description and Requirements Form or contact student.employment@sait.ca. All CCR eligible activities must be SAIT led or approved.

What is a co-curricular record?
The co-curricular record (CCR) is an official document, complementary to the academic transcript, which recognizes and records student learning achieved through approved co-curricular experiences. The co-curricular activities are validated by SAIT, and allows students to track, reflect on, and showcase the transferable skills and competencies they achieved through completion of activities.
What activities are eligible for a CCR?

A student's activity must be:

  • Approved by the Co-Curricular Coordinator and overseen or led by a SAIT or SAITSA validator
  • Relate directly to a student's experience at SAIT
  • Encourage and support student growth and development
  • Contribute to the greater life, atmosphere, and culture of the SAIT community
  • Not be for academic credit
  • Align with at least one of the official CCR competencies
  • Require a minimum 12-hour commitment from the student outside the student's academic requirements, to be completed within one academic year
  • The student must be able to demonstrate that learning occurred through submission of a reflective questionnaire during the validation process
  • Approved by the validator.

Students may select more than one activity in any academic year. However, if an activity carries over from one academic year to the next, you will need to select that activity at the start of each academic year.

What are the CCR competencies?
  • Social responsibility
  • Leadership
  • Collaboration
  • Spiritual Awareness
  • Intellectual Growth
  • Enhanced Self Awareness
  • Effective Communication
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Professionalism
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
  • Appreciating Diversity
  • Health and Wellness Behaviour
What is the timeline for completing a CCR?

Students must have their co-curricular activities entered into the database by May 15. After this date, records for the current academic year will be sealed and no previous CCR activities can be entered into the system.

Student requests for validation of accomplishments within the CCR database will be processed no later than the last Friday in May of each academic year. After this date, no further co-curricular activity for the academic year will be accepted.

How do I select a co-curricular activity?
  • Visit My Career Hub
  • If you haven't created an account already, click on "Student & Alumni Registration" and register
  • On the My Career Hub dashboard, select "Co-Curricular" on the side menu
  • Click on "Add a Position to my CCR" and browse the registered activities. While this can be done before, during or after you have completed an activity, it must be in the system by May 15 of each academic year.
  • Once you have completed the CCR activity, log in to My Career Hub and view the activity you have selected. Here you will add it to your personal reflection and choose the competencies.
  • Once you have chosen your competencies to follow the instructions to request that your activity is validated.
Can co-curricular activities be added retroactively to a student's CCR?
The CCR will only acknowledge accomplishments that meet the criteria set out in the guidelines for the 2017/18 academic year onward. Students can contact staff in Career Advancement Services (MB205) for advice on how to capture activities and accomplishments occurring prior to 2017/18 within a resume, apply for jobs and/or post-graduate programs.
Is the CCR mandatory?
No, the CCR is not mandatory, but it is an opportunity to showcase your skillset and get recognized for your SAIT involvement and achievements outside the classroom.
How is a co-curricular activity different from an extra-curricular activity?
Co-curricular activities aid in both personal and professional development and enhance learning and employability. Once a student has completed a co-curricular activity and that activity has been validated, it will go on the student's co-curricular record - an official SAIT document validating student achievement and involvement in approved activities. It is separate from the student's transcript and academic record.
What does it mean to have an activity validated?
Every approved CCR activity must have a validator associated with it. SAIT or SAITSA staff and/or faculty members act as validators and will verify a student was involved in that activity.
How do I add an activity to the CCR database?
If you are involved in an activity that you believe meets all of the requirements for CCR and don't see it in the CCR database, fill out the Co-Curricular Description & Requirements form. Please note this may take up to three business days to be processed by the co-curricular coordinator.
How can I get a copy of my co-curricular record?
CCRs are accessible by logging into your My Career Hub account and selecting the "Print My Record" at the top of the co-curricular record section. You can also attach a copy of your record to your job application along with your resumé when you apply for jobs through My Career Hub.
How long will the CCR be available for printing?
Records will be available from your My Career Hub dashboard after May 25. The record will remain permanently within My Career Hub.
Will I be notified if my request is denied?
You will always be notified if an activity request is denied, and the activity will not appear on your record.
