University of South Carolina (USC) Model

Focused on capturing the holistic educational experience, USC’s extended transcript project, "Beyond the Classroom Matters" (BTCM), required the involvement of student affairs, academic affairs, information technology, and the registrar’s office. The team built a catalog of beyond the classroom learning that currently includes approximately 150 cocurricular programs, including community service, undergraduate research, career coaching, supplemental instruction, leadership experiences, peer education and more. Each program is aligned with high impact practices and the educational purpose of each activity is clearly defined in the new database. This catalog has a web interface through which student participation is recorded.
