About CoCurricular Transcript
What is a CCT?
A Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) is an official record for your extracurricular activities and competencies that you enrolled in or achieved during your years of study at AUC. It complements your academic transcript through documenting your involvement outside the classroom for a more well-rounded representation of your achievements that are not only limited to academics.
Your CCT will be an officially verified document outlining your co-curricular activities. Each activity you submit will be validated by an AUC staff or faculty member and then your transcript will be stamped from the Office of the Dean of Students and picked up from the Office of Student Engagement. The CCT application is hosted on the SSB and accessible to all students only at the announced period of the semester. An announcement to submit your CCT records will be dent out through a portal announcement towards the end of each semester. You can only enter the activities for the current semester. Past activities will not be accepted due to verification reasons.
Why do you need a CCT?
“Whenever I apply for any internship or academic or professional program, I am always asked about the experiences I had in extracurricular activities” Mohamed Nabil Elimam
“I chose the co-curricular transcript because it documents the extracurricular activities, where I have exerted enormous effort, and it is evidence that proves I’ve done this work. I believe I will benefit from it when applying for jobs or even postgraduate studies, as it depicts the skills that I’ve gained and my learning curve.” Nour Beshir
Testimonials by AUC students echo worldwide trends and research that extracurricular activities enrich the student’s character and complements it in so many ways. It also allows students to perform with more confidence in job interviews and paves the way to more career opportunities. Since achievement is not only academic, graduating with a CCT will allow you to show your employer the other side of you, you will not only be judged academically, but will all the accomplishments you’ve done outside the walls of the class room. Not only that, but it allows you to showcase a list of verified and validated skills that you can help your employer with other than your academic degrew.
