What is a Co-Curricular Record?
The Co-Curricular record (CCR) at Selkirk College enables students to document learning and experience gained outside of the classroom environment. The CCR is an official document (like a transcript). Essentially, it is a log of verified and approved leadership, volunteer and non-academic activities that a student has been involved in while they attended Selkirk College.
What are the benefits of a CCR?
The CCR encourages self-reflection, self-awareness and highlights personal growth and development while participating in activities that contribute to campus life. It can be used to enhance employment applications, applications to undergrad/graduate programs, and applications for bursaries and scholarships.
Is the CCR mandatory for students?

- Faculty/staff identify possible CCR opportunities for students
- A job/activity description (including CCR competencies) is submitted to CEES
- Students apply for the activity
- Students participate in the activity
- Students self-evaluate their learning outcomes
- Staff/faculty validate the student learning outcomes
- Students can print a copy of their CCR to have on file
