Co-Curricular Transcripts

The Co-Curricular Transcript is designed to be an all-encompassing record of your involvement on and off-campus for all of your educational related experiences outside of the classroom. Keeping your co-curricular transcript up to date helps encourage student involvement in the learning process by allowing you to document your experiences and reflect on them throughout your time at Catholic University. Furthermore it can be a great asset for you to use in the future as you're creating or editing your resume by providing an on-going record of not only what you were involved in while at Catholic but also the impact the experience had on your growth as a student and a leader. The main elements of a Co-Curricular Transcript include:

  • Involvement in student organizations and other groups on campus
  • Experiences like internships, projects, honors and achievements, and conference attendance
  • Attendance at educational based events
  • Service hours done as part of a student organization

For more information on how to view, edit, and download your Co-Curricular Transcript use the information below. If you have additional questions please reach out to us at cua-activities@cua.edu
