Cocurricular Involvement Transcript: Helpful Hints

Do not use "I statements."

  • I chaired the committee. I also was in charge of the budget. I created a marketing campaign.
  • Each description should be a short phrase beginning with a past tense action verb for past activities that briefly describes what you did or accomplished. If it is a current activity, use the present tense. Do not write a job description because the reader will get the idea and be more likely to read your transcript if it is succinct and to the point.
  • Transcripts should be similar to a resume but provide more detail on your experiences and accomplishments. Error on the side of less words than more.

Use action verbs - See a helpful list here!

Keep it up-to-date. Once a month, go in and add details. In time, you will forget certain things and will be glad it's kept securely on this site.
