Involvement and learning outside the classroom
Not all learning happens in the classroom. In college, you will spend less time in the classroom than ever before. Your experiences outside the classroom while at Point Park University will help to shape the individual you become as a young professional. These positive experiences that influence you will be recorded on your cocurricular transcript.
The CCT is an official university document, similar to your academic transcript. It can be used along with your resume to demonstrate to potential employers the experiences that make you a well-rounded candidate for any position.
How Does the Cocurricular Transcript Work?
As a student at Point Park, you will record your participation in specific activities based on six categories. The Office of Student Engagement will guide you through the process of using the CCT, and the University will verify the activities.
Upon graduation, you may request a cocurricular transcript in addition to your academic transcript.
Cocurricular Transcript Categories:
- Cultural experiences
- Internships, practicums and field experiences
- Community-based learning and service
- Student Involvement and Leadership
- Honors and Awards
- Intellectual and Professional Development Experiences
