Develop a Cocurricular Transcript as an Online Student - Bradley Fuster, US News

Online students should consider participating in virtual clubs to build their transcripts. In the early 1990s, residential colleges began encouraging students to develop cocurricular transcripts as a way to organize and document their learning experiences outside the classroom. Increasingly since then, many residential colleges and a few progressive online programs have adopted cocurricular transcripts or similar e-portfolios to help students showcase their out-of-class experiences. While these transcripts lend themselves more organically to on-campus students, I encourage online students to embrace this practice. Doing so can help level the playing field with on-campus students when applying to graduate school, internships, jobs, awards or scholarships.
