The Co-Curricular Transcript is a self-reported document that lists activities the student has participated in while enrolled at The University of Tampa. Used along with a student's placement credentials, the transcript provides prospective employers and/or graduate schoolswith information on the student's involvement with co-curricular activities.
Employers and graduate schools are aware that co-curricular activities make for a well-rounded individual. By including the transcript with a resume, students can improve their marketability with potential employers or graduate schools. Involvement with student organizations, community service, campus media or Greek organizations can help students improve their social skills.
