What is a Co-Curricular Transcript?
Keep track of your involvement on campus through the Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT). The CCT is a companion tool to the academic transcript. You can utilize this tool to record achievements and activities over the course of your time at the Colleges. It is an ideal way for you to track your involvement in order to create a resume, apply for jobs, or apply for post graduate studies beyond Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
Whenever you are involved on campus, recognized through an award, or participate in a paraprofessional experience, be sure to enter your involvement on your CCT. The CCT will become a footprint of your time outside the classroom at HWS. The transferable skills gained from these leadership experiences will serve you well as you prepare for a successful future.
Why would I want a Co-Curricular Transcript?
Your Co-Curricular Transcript will complement your resume and academic transcript, which are submitted to graduate schools and prospective employers. The Co-Curricular Transcript will also help you develop personal contacts with professional staff from various areas on campus who will assist you in choosing areas of involvement that meet your personal and professional goals.
What types of activities should be submitted?
- Honors/Awards/Recognition: Recognizes participation in a college community organization as well as formal recognition for consistent above average performance.
- Leadership/Activities: Acknowledges a position of leadership or participation in a Hobart and William Smith organization that provides direction and guidance to the community.
- Paraprofessional: Encompasses areas that enhance professional development. Includes work experience as well as educational programs.
