Co-Curricular Record (CCR)
The CCR provides students an opportunity to document their verified non-academic extra-curricular involvement in volunteer work, professional development activities, receipt of awards, leadership experiences, varsity athletics, global engagement, and student society participation on an official university document, the Co-Curricular Record. Students may submit their activities via careerconnets.msvu.ca. Once the activity has been validated by the activity supervisor, it will appear on the student’s Co-Curricular Record along with the competencies the student has identified learning from the activity. The CCR gives students the edge employers and graduate schools are looking for! Students may wish to share their CCR along with their applications and it may be accessed by the student anytime via careerconnects.msvu.ca. Full details about the program, including student guidelines and frequently asked questions are available at msvu.ca/ccr.

Students with Disabilities
The Mount is committed to enabling students with disabilities to enter and complete university programs. We aspire to create an accessible learning environment for all students. Prospective students with physical or sensory disabilities should consider that our campus does extend up the side of a steep hill, therefore, moving between buildings might require a car or a motorized wheelchair. We support the use of assistive technology and other relevant support services whenever possible.
All students who request academic accommodations must provide supporting documentation from a healthcare professional.
To book an appointment with Accessibility Services, please call 902-457-6567. For more information please visit www.msvu.ca/accessibilityservices
