What is a Co-Curricular Transcript?
A Co-Curricular Transcript is an official university document that:
- Is similar to an academic transcript.
- Lists co-curricular and community involvement activities while at UT Arlington.
- Is verified by The Leadership Center staff, organizational advisors, and other approved staff.
- Remember: You build your own Co-Curricular Transcript by submitting a membership request to join an organization or by inputting participation in an activity that does not involve an organization with whom you are affiliated.
Why Would I Want One?
The Co-Curricular Transcript can be used as a supplement to a resume, scholarship applications, and Graduate school applications. Studies have shown that employers are looking for employees who have “practical competency” or the ability to work with others on campus and in community organizations, and on projects in the workplace. Involvement in leadership activities also provides a connection to campus life.
