Sheridan’s Co-Curricular Record is a document that recognizes the learnings a student engages in, outside of academic requirements, that is not reflected on their academic transcript.
FAST students have the opportunity to build their Co-Curricular Record (CCR) by participating in activities that take place outside of the classroom. CCR supports the personal growth and professional development of students while building their employability skills.
Sheridan’s Co-Curricular programs provide students a range of diverse and creative outlets to get involved, meet new people, and learn new skills through opportunities in student leadership, participation in clubs and athletics, involvement in research projects and engagement with community initiatives.
Within CCR opportunities, students are mentored by Sheridan’s Activity Leaders who are Sheridan faculty or staff members. Their role is to support students in identifying and pursuing their individual goals as they relate to their CCR participation.
During the fall semester, the CCR Administrators contact past Activity Leaders to confirm if their activity will be offered again in the current academic year. They also encourage all Sheridan faculty, staff and students to contact them directly if they have an idea or suggestion for a new CCR activity for the CCR Opportunities Directory.

Engaging students outside the classroom and making it count!
Most recently, Architectural Technology’s Dan Acimovic led three Architectural Technology students in a hands-on, co-curricular record (CCR) activity for Habitat for Humanity. Yu Ning Su (Samma), Mackenzie Mehring and Helly Pragneshkumar Shah were instrumental in preparing building permit drawings for a renovation and an addition to an existing home in Milton owned by Habitat for Humanity and slated to be given to a deserving family with a physically challenged minor.
The project revolved around accessibility renovations including a ground floor bedroom, a large bathroom renovation and an exterior elevation reconfiguration. Also required was the preparation of a site plan, floor plans and elevations as well as building permit drawings for a new exterior ramp that allowed for wheelchair access to the main floor.
Each student spent a minimum of 15 hours preparing existing and proposed drawings for the project, under Dan’s guidance. The Habitat for Humanity building permit application was submitted to the Town of Milton and is awaiting approval.
Dan worked with Christina Wiggins from the CCR office to ensure that the student’s hard work was recognized, and co-curricular credit given. What an excellent example of an innovative way Sheridan students can earn co-curricular credits and put their skills and knowledge into a practice.
