Your SAIT experience amounts to more than the grade point average (GPA) that appears on your transcript. Your education is built on everything you do while you're a student — inside and outside of the classroom. A Co-Curricular Record (CCR) provides you with an official document that complements your transcript and shows employers the transferable skills and competencies you've achieved through co-curricular experiences.
A CCR helps you track, reflect on and showcase the skills you gain through volunteering, club membership, mentoring, tutoring and more. A strong CCR will provide potential employers with a more comprehensive view of what you can offer to their organizations.
The Benefits of participating
By participating in approved CCR activities, you will receive an industry-recognized certificate listing your activities so you can provide to prospective employers. You'll also be better prepared to talk about your skills and experiences on your resumé and during interviews.
How to participate
Many SAIT-based activities are eligible for CCR credit and more are being added every day. Talk to your activity leaders to find out more about the credit you're earning already. Track your CCR activities and find available opportunities through My Career Hub.
Approved CCR activities include:
- Peer tutoring
- Peer mentorship
- International Centre peer tutoring
- Aviation Student Alliance Club
- Skills Canada electrical trades training
- Fourth-year electrical tutoring

Note: All activities must be SAIT led or approved.
|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.|
A student's activity must be:
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.
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.
|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 the SAIT Student Employment & Career Centre (MB205) for advice on how to capture activities and accomplishments occuring prior to 2017/18 within a resume, apply for jobs and/or post-graduate programs.|
|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.|
|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 seperate from the student's transcript and academic record.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|Records will be available from your My Career Hub dashboard after May 25. The record will remain permanently within My Career Hub.|
|You will always be notified if an activity request is denied, and the activity will not appear on your record.|
