Advising

What is this co-curricular transcript I'm hearing about?

A co-curricular transcript is a verified record of a student's co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Co-curricular transcripts are not uncommon at larger institutions but are rare at institutions similar to Augustana. As stated on the Augustana Co-curricular Transcript, "The Augustana Co-Curricular Transcript is a representation of student involvement across the curriculum, including opportunities for participation and leadership beyond the classroom and beyond the borders of our campus community. These experiences are directly related to our mission and the goal of our student learning outcomes."

The version of the co-curricular transcript we will roll out this year has five sections: Academic Enrichment (including internships, study abroad, student research, participation in music ensembles, etc); Awards and Honors (including departmental and college awards); Campus Leadership (including athletic leadership, leadership within campus organizations, etc); College Involvement (active participation in athletic teams, clubs, organizations as self-reported by students); and Volunteerism (as self-reported by students). As we gain experience with the co-curricular transcript, we will make modifications as needed.

How does a co-curricular transcript benefit students?

The co-curricular transcript is not intended to be a stand-alone document. It is a conversation starter. When students print their co-curricular transcript, our student learning outcomes will be printed as part of the document. The goal for students is to be able to clearly articulate what they learned as a result of specific activities listed on the transcript and how that knowledge or skill set has prepared them for graduate school or the job for which they are applying.

Is this more work for me?

Verification of most student activities will occur in administrative offices. Student research is one exception. Because many students are involved in non-credit bearing significant research or creative expression both on and off campus, faculty will need to verify student involvement in these activities. Students will be responsible for completing the paperwork involved, but the paperwork requires a faculty signature.

Otherwise, the only work for faculty is to learn how to help students use this resource.

When will I be able to learn more?

We will set up several faculty workshops early in Winter term covering how to help students use their co-curricular transcript as a tool to showcase their Augustana experience to employers and grad schools. We will introduce students to the co-curricular transcript during the group advising session on Symposium Day, January 20.
