Co-curricular transcripts track more than academics

Students can use BoilerLink to create a co-curricular transcript as a way to track involvement in campus activities.

BoilerLink is a Web platform that allows students and student organizations to manage campus organizations, recruit members, publicize events and create historical records for smooth leadership transitions. The co-curricular transcript feature allows students to compile information about their experiences and involvement in organizations, events and other co-curricular activities at Purdue, some of which must be verified by faculty or staff members.

Co-curricular transcripts include information about a student’s organization memberships, leadership positions, event attendance at major campus programs and community service hours logged. Students can also self-report experiences such as study abroad programs, honors or awards, campus employment or internships as well as reflections on those experiences.

Students must provide the Student Activities and Organizations office with contact information for faculty and staff members who can verify self-reported experiences. Faculty and staff may receive requests from Student Activities and Organizations staff members to verify student involvement in self-reported activities. Verification can be accomplished through an easy and efficient process.

Co-curricular transcripts can be used as a record involvement at Purdue, to supplement graduate school applications, scholarships or campus jobs. This transcript can be used as a tool to reflect on experiences that would make them more marketable when preparing for job interviews, networking opportunities, resume development and planning personal goals.
