Students are responsible for requesting certification when requesting transcripts to be sent to participating institutions.

Extra-Curricular Activities Record
The Extra-Curricular Activities and Honors Coursework Record is available for students to have their participation in college clubs and/or district organizations, student government, service to the community on behalf of a club, publications, scholarships, and awards acknowledged and mailed with their transcripts. The form also serves as a record for Honors Coursework taken at RCC.
This form is now available on-line for students to type in their activities and/or coursework, print out the form utilizing only 1 page (double sided), and then take the form to their advisors for signatures.
After compiling all of the signatures the form must then be taken for signature to a campus student service official for clubs and activities; if for Honors coursework an academic service official's signature is required. For scholarships please obtain the signature from the District Dean of Student Financial Services. The last office will deliver it to the Transcripts Office in the Admissions &Counseling Building at Riverside City College. When students request transcripts this form will be copied and mailed out with the transcripts.
Please keep in mind that only one form is mailed out. If students turn in an Extra-Curricular Activities and Honor Coursework Record form and then stay at RCC longer and turn in another form, the second form must have all of the first form's information on it, including signatures. Only the current form will be mailed. It is important to keep this form neat, grammatically correct, and preferably typed.
