Your hard work outside of the classroom deserves to be recognized. UCSD now has a Co-Curricular Record, which recognizes your involvement and skills developed on an official, validated record signed by the Registrar of the university. You’ll be able to highlight the skills you developed, which is great when you’re meeting with potential employers or applying for graduate/professional programs.
