The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) offers a way for students to formally document all of their non-academic, extra-curricular involvement in an official format. Here is some information on questions relating to what the Co-Curricular Record is and how to set it up.

If you have any questions, contact us at ccr@msvu.ca

What is the Co-Curricular Record (CCR)?

The Co-Curricular Record can include activities such as volunteer work, athletics, awards and other leadership activities. You can request your CCR at any time for reasons such as job applications, award nominations, or scholarship opportunities.

How will the CCR benefit me?

Having a well-rounded CCR can be a great asset to your application when applying to your first job after graduation. Our new CCR format allows you to show your skills in a detailed way by outlining essential competencies you have gained.

How do I create my CCR?

You can create your CCR easily on our new system careerconnects.msvu.ca (best accessed via Google Chrome or Firefox). Once you reach this webpage click “login” and then “student”.

At this point you will be prompted to the traditional myMount screen where you can continue to sign in as usual. The system will automatically recognize you and from there, you can click “Co-curricular Record” and add approved positions that you have completed to your record. Validation from the Supervisor of the activity or event is required before any activity/award can be officially recorded on your CCR. For your convenience, an email will be automatically generated and sent to your supervisor when you submit an entry.

What activities can go on my CCR?

There are 7 types of activities that can be documented on a CCR. These include:

  • Student Leadership (i.e. executive positions in student government, campus societies, or athletics, Residence Assistant or Don)
  • Varsity Athletics Participation (i.e. team member)
  • Student Club/Society Involvement (i.e. member)
  • Student Awards (Awards excluding Scholarships awarded by the university scholarship committee due to the fact that those scholarships will be documented on the Academic Transcript.)
  • Professional Development (training outside of class – i.e. First Aid/CPR certification, non-violent crisis intervention, conference attendance and conference presentations)
  • Volunteer work (on-campus or off-campus)
  • Global Engagement

Normally, no activity in which you were paid or received academic credit can be documented on your CCR. This includes summer employment and co-op terms. However, various awards received by students for achievements in these areas can be documented.

What if I have more than one role with the same organization?

If you have more than one role with the same organization, you should add each of these activities separately.

How do I receive an official or unofficial copy of my CCR?

You can access your CCR anytime directly on Career Connects under the Co-curricular Record module.

Can I submit activities/awards that I have been a part of before 2018-2019?

Yes, however you can only submit activities while you were a Mount student going back 3 years (2016).

How do I submit external positions (for example, volunteer work and professional development)?

Please see the External Position Tip Sheet for instructions on how to add external positions to your CCR.

What if there is no activity or position that suits my CCR experience? Can these be added?

If there is no “position” that suits your CCR entry, contact the CCR Project Officer at ccr@msvu.ca as they need to first submit the requirements for new activities and positions and have it approved in Career Connects before you can add it to your CCR.
