What is the Co-Curricular Transcript? The Co-Curricular Transcript is a record of outside-of-the-classroom involvement at UB. Your Co-Curricular Transcript compliments your academic transcript by defining key engagement experiences, otherwise referred to as Pillar Experiences. These activities include: club membership, club positions held, experiences, workshops, events, special recognition, and more!
What is a Pillar Experience? Pillar Experiences are events, workshops, student employment, service, or other opportunities that are high-impact experiences. In order to be classified as a Pillar Experience, it must achieve one of the predetermined learning outcomes, be a substantive interaction in or out of class, deepen understanding of self or others, connect in-class and out-of-class learning, and be non-credit bearing.
How can I access my Co-Curricular Transcript? You can access your Co-Curricular Transcript through UBLinked. Log in, click on the "My Involvement" tab, and then select "Co-Curricular Transcript." From here, you are able to customize, create a PDF of, save, or print your Co-Curricular Transcript.
Can I add other experiences that are not automatically documented? Yes! After logging in to UBLinked, select "Experiences" under the "My Involvement" tab. Select "Add Experience" and submit for review. Once your submission is approved, it will appear on your Co-Curricular Transcript.

- Must have a clear learning outcome
- Cannot offer academic credit
- Must be a substantive interaction, in class or out of class with peers, faculty and/or staff
- Can be a common experience that deepens understanding of self or others
- Must be an opportunity to connect in-class and out-of-class learning
If your event meets these criteria, create the event through UBLinked for your organization. Part of the event creation form will ask if you want the event to be considered for a Pillar Experience. Just click Yes and fill out the additional information so it can be properly evaluated.
