Develop a Cocurricular Transcript as an Online Student

Online students should consider participating in virtual clubs to build their transcripts. In the early 1990s, residential colleges began encouraging students to develop cocurricular transcripts as a way to organize and document their learning experiences outside the classroom. Increasingly since then, many residential colleges and a few progressive online programs have adopted cocurricular transcripts or similar e-portfolios to help students showcase their out-of-class experiences. While these transcripts lend themselves more organically to on-campus students, I encourage online students to embrace this practice. Doing so can help level the playing field with on-campus students when applying to graduate school, internships, jobs, awards or scholarships.
