Student Guidelines

Please review the Student CCR Guidelines (PDF – 292 KB) for more information.

If you are involved in your community outside of the classroom, on campus or off campus, you’re eligible to add these activities to your Co-Curricular Record (CCR) with proper validation from a recognized supervisor. Supervisors must be a university staff or faculty member for on-campus activities, or a staff member of a recognized organization in the case of off-campus volunteer work or professional development activities.

There are seven (7) categories of activities which are eligible:


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 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.
