What is the CCR?
McGill’s Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is a document that recognizes a student's involvement in learning opportunities outside the classroom. Any student currently registered at McGill can sign in to myInvolvement with McGill credentials to view, customize, and print their CCR. The CCR can be a useful addition to your CV/resume or graduate/professional school applications. Use it to showcase your achievements!
The McGill CCR has four sections:
- Personal and Professional Development (e.g. workshops, research lectures, etc.)
- Campus and Community Engagement (e.g. volunteering, mentorship, tutoring, etc.)
- Student-Led Initiatives (e.g. student government positions, SSMU services, etc.)
- Activity-Based Awards and Fellowships (select awards that are not recognized on the academic transcript)
Administrative units and recognized student organizations on campus may request to have their eligible opportunities recorded on the CCR.
For student participants to be recognized on the McGill CCR, opportunities:
- must have a learning component.
- are not required for academic credit.
- are not recognized on the academic transcript.
- are unpaid or paid less than $1000 per academic year.
- meet a 4-hour minimum for volunteer positions/service opportunities. (There is not a minimum time requirement for workshops.)
The CCR program strives to be inclusive and fair to all students, therefore it will not be implemented retroactively.
The CCR will acknowledge accomplishments that meet the criteria set out in the guidelines above for the 2014–15 academic year onward. Activities or accomplishment require validation at the time of its completion. Therefore, it can be difficult to validate activities or accomplishments from previous years. The only activities or accomplishments that were acknowledged on the CCR from the past were activities approved and validated during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years.
CCRs in Canada
McGill is one of over 80 Canadian universities and colleges that have launched or are developing co-curricular recognition programs, including our peer research-intensive universities in Québec and across the country. We are a member of the Co-Curricular Records Community of Practice at the Canadian Association of College & University Student Services (CACUSS).
