What is the Co-Curricular Record?
The CCR is an official record of your co-curricular involvement as a student at UCCS. Co-Curricular involvement encompasses all that you've experienced and learned outside of the classroom. By utilizing the CCR you'll be in a better position to articulate the value of your entire college experience. Examples of the experiences included on the official CCR might include:
- UCCSlead Certification
- Service Participation
- Event Participation
- Organization Membership
- Leadership Roles
- Professional Development
- Community Service and Engagement
Involvement entered in Mountain Lion Connect is what creates the CCR. You are in charge of deciding what to include. Click here for step by step instructions:

Frequently Asked Questions about CCR:
How do I preview my CCR before I request it?
Instead of clicking "Requestion Official Transcript" in your Profile Reports Section, click "Download", which will give you a preview version of your CCR. The preview version will allow you to see the unofficial version.
How do I select to edit, add, remove, or delete activities from my CCR?
To select any of these options for activities listed on your CCR, you must view your activities, which is under your Profile Involvements. Once you view the activity list, hover over the options icon. This will give you the options to edit the entry, remove or add it from your overall activity history, remove or add the entry to your record (the CCR), or delete the entry entirely.
How do I edit an activity entry once it has been approved?
We recommend that you do not use this feature. It only allows you to edit the proof of participation file, change your Role, Learning Outcomes, and your Reflection. Once you edit your entry, it does not re-notify your reference and does not allow them to reapprove your involvement. We recommend that if you have to make a change to your involvement entry, you delete the entry and create a new one. Once you create the new entry, your reference will receive an email notification to approve or deny your request and you can update it with new information.
How do I add or remove Organization Memberships from my CCR?
The Organization Memberships are under your Profile Involvement Page. Once you view the Organization Membership list, hover over the options icon and you will see the options to add or hide from your overall activity history, and the option to add or hide from your record (the CCR).
