The Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) is a record of a student’s involvement in educational experiences taking place outside of the classroom. The CCT program is designed to encourage significant student involvement in the learning process by documenting academic experiences that take place outside the classroom. The CCT serves to accentuate the student’s personal journey and provides a holistic view of a student’s skills and abilities. It can increase a student’s marketability to prospective employers and graduate schools, who are seeking individuals who are dedicated to leadership development, community service, and civic engagement. The CCT is a college verfied document that bears the College Seal. The CCT can and should be customized to complement an academic transcript or a resume.
The Co-Curricular Transcript reflects active participation in learning experiences and provides an opportunity to highlight leadership, decision-making, team-building, problem solving, communication, goal setting and networking skills. The Office of Student Life and The EDGE Career Center provide advice and counseling to assist students in the preparation, maintenance and effective usage of a functional Co-Curricular Transcript.
CO-CURRICULAR TRANSCRIPT COMPONENTS
The Co-Curricular Transcript is organized around four areas of learning and development. Transcript entries reflect student involvement in various activities and must meet the certification criteria of at least one of the four learning components outlined below:
- AWARDS, HONORS & SCHOLARSHIP acknowledge distinguished academic or personal achievement bestowed upon students while attending Randolph-Macon College.
- STUDENT ORGANIZATION & LEADERSHIP ACTIVITIES reflect student membership and participation in College-recognized clubs and organizations. Items included in this component require a record of organizational membership for at least one semester and certification of organizational contributions by the Assistant Dean of Students or his designee.
- EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS & PROGRAMS are College-sponsored workshops and seminars presented by professional educators, scholars or certified practitioners. Programs listed in this area are designed to enhance a student’s personal, academic, leadership and/or cultural development. Examples include the Student Leadership Conference and the Dream Speak Conference which are offered each year.
- COMMUNITY SERVICE & CIVIC ENGAGEMENT represent R-MC sponsored events and activities that demonstrate a commitment to civic responsibility. Such activities promote citizenship, political awareness, public service and charitable contributions.
All official Co-Curricular Transcripts are official documents of Randolph-Macon College bearing the University seal. All entries listed on this transcript have been validated by the Office of Student Life under the authority of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
