How to Submit a New CCR Opportunity


CCR Opportunities must be submitted by a UC San Diego Staff or Faculty member affiliated with the student opportunity. The submission process includes 4 main steps detailed below.



Verify the Opportunity Meets CCR Criteria

In order to be approved for the Co-Curricular Record, the student opportunity must:

1. Have a clear connection to UC San Diego: The opportunity must have a clear connection to the university and be capable of being validated by a recognized UC San Diego faculty or staff member.

2. Develop the student's skills and competencies: The opportunity must enhance at least one of the twelve competencies and transferable skills identified by UC San Diego.

3. Provide 30-hours of active engagement through the academic year*: The opportunity must require at least 30 hours of active engagement and work within a single academic year. Positions or activities that are primarily symbolic, and do not require significant programming and duties, will not qualify to be listed.

*Minimum hourly exception granted for opportunities that fall under the "Professional / Career Development Category".

4. Not be linked to credit-bearing activities: All credit-bearing activities – coursework, academic internships, 199s, etc. – are recognized on a student’s academic transcript.  To avoid duplication, these will not be listed on the CCR.  

CCR Approved opportunities can include:

  • Paid student positions e.g. work study
  • Student leadership and governance e.g. council members, committee members
  • On campus internships
  • Mentorship/Peer Services e.g. peer advisors, ambassadors
  • Research opportunities e.g. research assistants/teaching assistantship
  • Student organizations
  • Athletics
  • Certificate Programs and Workshops

See the CCR Approved list here.

Gather Required Information

How do you know which submission drafting document to use?

  • If you have one position to submit for your opportunity, you would use the Single Submission Drafting Document. This applies even if multiple students hold one position of the same title. For example your opportunity could have one position title for "Intern" but there may be multiple interns working in that same role.
  • If you have two or more positions that will each have their own participant in that position, you would use the Group Submission Drafting Document. For example these separate positions could look like "President," "Treasurer," "Secretary." Each of those positions would be working distinct and unique roles.

When finished, for single positions, submit your positions on the CCR Submission Form. If you are submitting multiple positions, please email with a link to the drafting document.

We have also put together a step-by-step guide to help you through the CCR Submission Form. This guide provides general examples which should be modified to suit your student opportunities as needed.

The CCR Evaluation Committee meets quarterly to review, discuss, and approve or decline proposed opportunities based on the criteria listed above. All submissions received by Week 5 of the academic quarter will be reviewed during the CCR Evaluation Committee quarterly meeting. If approved, any students who completed the CCR activity within that academic year will be able to receive CCR validation and recognition on their record.

We will contact you with any questions about the submission form during this review process.
