At WSU, we believe that learning can happen anywhere – not just in the classroom. That’s why the Co-Curricular transcripts (CCT) were developed in Fall 2018.
Just like your academic transcript tracks the courses you’ve taken, your co-curricular transcript is an official record of the extra steps you’ve taken to build your skills.
You can send your co-curricular transcript along with your application materials to employers, graduate schools, scholarship committees and more. This can really showcase your leadership experience and give you a competitive edge.

The CCT categories cover a variety of skills and experiences you'll need in your career and personal life. Pick one area that interests you the most or pursue them all!
Understanding how to evaluate information and use technology is essential in almost every career.
Through Digital Citizenship events, you’ll learn how to:
- Use technology to quickly and effectively find information
- Assess whether the information is accurate, trustworthy, relevant and more
- Apply technology skills in your daily and professional life
You’ll also analyze the economic, legal, social and ethical issues around the use of information and technology.
Civic engagement simply means getting involved in your community and working with others to make a difference. It doesn’t have to be a political act, though that’s often what first comes to mind.
The Civic Engagement activities at WSU take a broad approach building communication skills and solving social problems together.
You’ll learn how to collaborate with others to tackle social, personal or ethical dilemmas.
In the end, you’ll know how to construct a strong argument, tell a compelling narrative and provide a clear explanation. You’ll also be able to tailor your messages to general and specific audiences.
Being a good leader isn't based on raw talent. In fact, everyone has the ability to develop leadership skills and become a leader.
Obviously, you need leadership skills if you want to be a manager, director or CEO for a company. But if that's not your career path, you can still be a leader for your co-workers and in your community.
Through Leadership Development at WSU, you'll learn how to:
- explore complex issues and form a position
- consider multiple perspectives when evaluating issues
- present relevant solutions to address problems
The world --and workplace-- has become a global community. This means that you'll work with people from diverse cultural backgrounds, so you need to be mindful of those differences in your interactions.
Build your Intercultural Competencies in order to:
- recognize how your actions impact others
- collaborate with people in communities whether they are similar or different from you
- commit to building inclusive community partnerships
- connect and share knowledge with others that benefits the greater community
