Co-Curricular Record

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.

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 occured 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
  • Spritual 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 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 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.
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 seperate 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.
