Joining the CCR is a great way for student leaders, volunteers to level up your job or graduate school applications. Community organizations and the Mount validate competencies you’ve earned during your volunteer and extra-curricular activities, giving you third party support that employers and admissions committees notice. Apply for your CCR online and download a digital or printed copy so your next job or graduate applications stands out!

How it works
The CCR (Co-curricular Record) helps students record and display the experience(s) needed to carry into their professional lives. The CCR includes numerous activities and positions ranging from volunteer service to professional development from on-campus and off-campus activities. The CCR tracks students’ extracurricular activities during their time at university, generating a certificate for students to use when looking for employment or applying to graduate school.
CCR groups activities into seven categories:
Executive positions in student government, campus societies, or athletics, Residence Assistant or Don
Varsity Athletics Participation
Student Club/Society Involvement
Awards excluding Scholarships awarded by the university scholarship committee due to the fact that those scholarships will be documented on the Academic Transcript
Training outside of class – i.e. First Aid/CPR certification, non-violent crisis intervention, conference attendance and conference presentations
on-campus or off-campus
A: On-campus: involvement in Buddy Program, fundraising for international development cause
B: Off-campus/Canada: intercultural competency training, volunteer work with Immigration Settlement Association Nova Scotia (ISANS), or similar NGOs in other provinces
C: Off-campus/Abroad: international volunteer activities through NGOs or church.
