Student Development Transcript
The Student Development Transcript (SDT) is designed to record and validate the extra-curricular activities you, as an OSU student, become involved in throughout your college career. This transcript can accompany your resume or job application to officially inform potential employers, transfer institutions, and graduate schools of your activities outside of the classroom. It can also be used throughout your college years for opportunities such as scholarships and honorary applications.
A file can be started at any point in your OSU academic career; however, you are encouraged to start as early as possible, preferably your junior year. Your transcript will be more accurate if you submit entries each year or at the end of each activity. Remember, the success of the transcript is completely in your hands.
Enroll in the SDT program by downloading and completing the registration form (PDF format) and returning it to the Campus Life office in North Hall 130.
