Four students gathered together, with "Co-Curricular Record" overlaying text

Who can have new opportunities recognized on the CCR?

All McGill staff, professors, or student leaders* who organize eligible co-curricular involvement opportunities can have them recognized on the co-curricular record (CCR).

*Student leaders: All student organizations who want to have their opportunity/opportunities recognized on the co-curricular record must be first registered and recognized by either:

  1. an undergraduate faculty of student association (i.e., AUS, POTUS, etc.),
  2. an undergraduate departmental association,
  3. a post graduate student association (PGSA),
  4. a student organization, club or services registered under a McGill student association (I.e., SSMU, faculty association, etc.)
  5. an independent student organization formally affiliated with McGill University.

How staff and student leaders can add new opportunities to the CCR

  1. Check to see if your opportunity meets the eligibility guidelines. If your opportunity meets our eligibility guidelines, then continue to step 2. If your opportunity doesn’t meet our guidelines but you would like to discuss the matter in more detail, please contact us at myinvolvement [at] mcgill.ca
  2. Select the opportunity type that is best applicable to you:
