Co-Curricular Record

Co-Curricular Activities

Olds College recognizes that learning occurs both inside and outside the classroom. While a transcript is a record of students’ academic achievements, a Co-Curricular Record is an official document that showcases the skills and competencies learned outside the classroom.

The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) Program at Olds College recognizes student experiences and achievements gained through the completion of approved co-curricular activities. Combined with an academic record it provides a comprehensive view of students’ accomplishments at Olds College. Any Olds College employee or SAOC representative can sponsor a CCR activity.
