Questions and comments arose during the research process regarding the Co-Curricular Record (CCR). The research findings from Phase 1 of the ARUCC PCCAT National Transcript and Transfer Credit Nomenclature Standards Study suggest the national community supports creating a co-curricular record that functions as a separate but complementary document to the existing Official Academic Transcript. Further, most respondents reported co-curricular information is not currently captured on the Transcript. Another national committee is developing associated standards and protocols for the co-curricular record; therefore, below are select examples of existing CCRs at different institutions to help support these conversations.
