CEL Resources for Students

The VIU Career Studio, located in Building 255, Room 204 operates as a physical space and virtual hub where students from all programs can find career development education, support and resources. The Career Studio offers drop-in services, workshops, specialized appointments, preparation for job search, and puts on career fairs and other events to help connect students with employers.

Overseen by the Office of Co-Curricular Engagement and Learning, the Co-Curricular Record (CCR) encourages you to experience more holistic academic and career development by building upon your accumulating skills and experiences. CCR aims at giving you a practical experience to learn, which will in turn build and recognize your employability skills.


Your CCR is your non-academic transcript. The CCR recognizes both paid and volunteer experiences. Submit your CCR reflection in a matter of minutes and get credit for your campus experiences. You can access your CCR through VIU’s Co-Curricular Involvement App.
