Co-Curricular Record Information

The University of Calgary Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is a program that provides students with a platform to have their on-campus volunteer and extra-curricular experiences recognized officially on a University of Calgary document. When coupled with your academic transcript, the CCR will provide a holistic view of your overall student experience at the University of Calgary, and will help set you apart from the competition when you graduate. The CCR is hosted on the Elevate portal, and uses a database of extracurricular and co-curricular activities that allows students to add positions they have participated into their personal Co-Curricular Record.

The Co-Curricular Record is hosted through the Elevate portal. Through the Elevate portal, students can search through an online database of CCR-eligible activities and positions, and request to add them to their personal Co-Curricular Record. The CCR database operates on an annual basis, meaning that students request to add positions to their personal record during the year they participate in the position. Each year, students can request to add eligible positions to their Co-Curricular Record from the current activity period . The CCR database is copied over to the new time period, with the opportunity additional activities and positions can be added into the database by request.

After a student has manually added a position into their personal record, the CCR Validator for the position reviews the student’s request to have the role appear on their record, and approves or declines the request. Students can choose to download and print their record to help keep track of activities, and to use as a supplement for resumes and applications.

For new activities to be added to the CCR database, they must meet all the following criteria:

  1. The position must be an on-campus activity or be attached to an on-campus department, club or faculty;
  2. Students must complete a minimum of 10 hours over the CCR year (May 1 - June 30).
  3. The position can be paid; however, the function of the job must be focused on student engagement work (ex. Community Advisors in residence); and
  4. The position cannot be attached to any form of academic credit.

Policy modifications have been made available for students whose participation in CCR-eligible positions has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please read more on our FAQ page.
