Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can experiences from previous years be added?

No, the CCR does not allow activities to be added retroactively from previous academic years, so it is important to ensure you are always keeping your record up to date!

Students are responsible for ensuring their experiences are added by the end of April each year.

Which experiences are CCR Certified?

Experiences must meet all of the following criteria to be eligible for inclusion on Humber and Guelph-Humber’s Co-curricular record:

  1. Must be co-curricular in nature: not part of the academic curriculum, tied to grades, or awards.
  2. Must provide valuable competency development, i.e. provide meaningful learning opportunities for students.
  3. Have an approved affiliation with Humber or Guelph-Humber per validator’s departmental protocol.
  4. Can be accurately validated by a staff/faculty member.
  5. All experiences must adhere to the Code of Student Conduct policies.

When should I add my experiences to my record?

Students will only have their experiences validated AFTER they complete the minimum requirements. Experiences added before this time may be declined for validation.

Which students are eligible for CCR experiences?

All active credential-seeking students, both full-time and part-time, at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber are eligible to have their CCR experiences recognized on the record.

Do other Canadian institutions have Co-Curricular Records?

Yes, a number of post-secondary institutions in Canada are researching, developing and implementing their Co-Curricular Records.
