Co-Curricular Record


Your Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is an official university document that recognizes your accomplishments and experiential learning that happens outside of the classroom—including campus life and community engagement, volunteer and service leadership, and awards for amazing contributions. It’s a fantastic complement to your resume and transcript that showcases your whole university experience.

DALConnects Leadership Program

With DALConnects you’ll do great work for meaningful causes, develop new skills, and build up the experience you’ll need for your future career.

It’s a free leadership program that connects you with the community and develops your leadership potential.

Dal students are known for academic excellence, and your achievements outside of the classroom are just as impressive. The Impact Awards celebrate your contributions to Dal and the broader Halifax community in areas such as entrepreneurship, academic life, activism, student life, student societies, community service, residence life, and recreational athletics.
