The Co-Curricular Transcript is a record of a student’s participation in select experiences that occur outside of the traditional classroom. The University of Tennessee validates all information presented on a student’s Co-Curricular Transcript. Validation occurs within each program responsible for the experiences and is then maintained in a centralized system. Students do not personally enter any experiences onto their transcripts.
The Five Volunteer Experiences
Students are able to gain leadership skills in a variety of roles/positions/experiences. As a campus, we believe leadership is accessible to all people and can be developed through a values-based process that is collaborative and relational.
A comprehensive list of Leadership Experiences appearing on the CCT is available. If you participated in leadership experience, indicated on the list of Leadership Experiences on the Co-Curricular Transcript, and the experience did not appear, please complete the Co-Curricular Transcript Missing Leadership Experience Form. If your campus/academic department/college would like a Leadership Experience added to the Co-Curricular Transcript, please complete the New CCT Leadership Experience Form.
Our campus defines community service/volunteerism as “action taken to meet the needs of others and to better the community as a whole” (Campus Compact, 1998). Service does not include philanthropic events or time spent completing the task of a designated leadership position.
Professional and Applied Experiences
Students work collaboratively with a research mentor on research projects. These research experiences prepare students for graduate school and/or employment opportunities. Research experiences validated by the Office of Undergraduate Research are activities beyond what is completed as part of regular course work but may include work completed as part of an independent study.
