Add Involvement to the CCR

Who can recognize students on the CCR?

McGill staff, professors, or student leaders (see below) who organize eligible co-curricular involvement opportunities.

Student Organizations: Student organizations must be affiliated directly with a student government organization, a faculty, or directly with a McGill administrative unit to register with myInvolvement and recognize student participants on the CCR.


How do we recognize students on the CCR?

  1. Check if your opportunity meets the eligibility guidelines.
  2. Select the opportunity type below:

Volunteer Recognition

CCR Sections:

Approval Process: Tell us about your opportunity by sending us a completed Volunteer Recognition Request Form for approval in advance of the volunteer opportunity.

Attendance Tracking: Transfer the list of volunteers to us by either 1) inviting us to access a file saved in your McGill OneDrive account, or 2) send us the list through a message in MS Teams. Lists must contain either student ID numbers or @mail.mcgill.ca email addresses. We do not accept non-McGill email addresses. Please note we no longer accept lists of participants by email.

Student Organization Executives

CCR Section: Student-Led Initiatives. (Click here for more information on the five CCR sections.)

The instructions for recognizing student executives can be found here. To recognize other eligible volunteers or workshop participants, use the instructions on those tabs.

Click here for general information about how student organizations can use myInvolvement.

  1. August 1 - November 30: Register or reregister your organization with myInvolvement.
  2. January 1: Send up-to-date and approved constitution to myInvolvement team. Constitutions are uploaded as part of the organization registration process in Step 1; newly updated and approved constitutions can be emailed to myinvolvement [at] mcgill.ca after that date but before January 1 of the school year in question. Only student executive positions detailed in an up-to-date and properly approved constitution or bilaws can be recognized on the CCR.
  3. March 1: Your organization will receive an email confirming the positions in your constitution (sent to an executive member identified during the organization registration process in Step 1) in January or February. That executive will add the email addresses for each student executive, choose the top 3 learning outcomes for each position from a list provided, and return the list to the CCR team (myinvolvement [at] mcgill.ca) by March 1.
  4. March-April: The CCR team will add recognition for all executive members to their CCRs.

Can students submit their own experiences to be recognized on the CCR?

Students may record unverified experiences on their student-generated CCRs. This is a great way to keep track of their participation in opportunities that are not currently CCR-eligible. To submit an self-reported experience:

  1. Sign in to myInvolvement.
  2. Click your first initial (or photo) in the top-right corner of the page.
  3. Click "Experiences".
  4. Click "Add Experience".
  5. Click "Student Self-Reported Experiences (NOT VERIFIED BY MCGILL UNIVERSITY)".
  6. Fill out the form and press "Submit".
  7. Experiences are normally approved within two business days.

Participation in recognized CCR experiences is submitted to us directly by McGill staff/faculty who oversee these opportunities or by student leaders (association or club executives).
