What is my Experience Transcript?
Your Experience Transcript is a record of all involvement and academic activity that occurred outside the classroom. Your college experience is more than the courses you took; the experiences in activities such as student organizations, internships, and community engagement activities create a holistic representation of you that employers want to see. Similar to how the academic transcript lists courses taken and grades received, the experience transcript displays your journey through the university by documenting your skills learned from other experiences. The information presented on an Experience Transcript is validated within each program responsible for the experience at UTSA.
How should I use the Experience Transcript?
The Experience Transcript can be used:
- To enhance a résumé
- When applying for jobs or professional schools
- In preparation for a job interview; specific examples of past experiences demonstrate competence and increase your marketability.
- As leverage in the advancement of students’ careers, particularly for employers seeking evidence of specific marketable skills.
- As a tool for reflection; a chance for students to meditate on your accomplishments and experiences during your time at UTSA.
- As a visual representation of a student's holistic journey through UTSA and the marketable skills gained along the way.
