Ithaca College will implement a co-curricular transcript for all students, beginning during the Fall 2016 semester. The co-curricular transcript is a comprehensive record of students’ participation and achievements in campus life experiences outside of the classroom while enrolled at Ithaca College. These activities help students achieve excellence in their chosen fields and can demonstrate how they have learned to share the responsibilities of citizenship and service in the global community. When coupled with their academic transcripts, a holistic representation of students’ total education, both inside and outside of the classroom, will be created.
