Student Credential Transcript

Robert Morris is one of the few universities in the country to use a Student Credential Transcript. The Credential Transcript is a document produced for students alongside their traditional transcript of letter grades. As RMU students work toward their degree, they are earning credentials in skills that employers want. Credentialing allows students to watch their skills and abilities grow. The Credential Transcript plots the student's progress through 9 universal skills across three levels of proficiency (acquisition, application and integration).  Those 9 skills are:

  • Collaboration
  • Oral Communication
  • Written Communication
  • Creative Thinking
  • Critical Thinking
  • Cultural Awareness
  • Leadership
  • Managing Information
  • Quantitative Evaluation

In addition to the universal competencies, program skills have also been identified from each major which also appear on your Credential Transcript.  Involvement in student clubs, athletics, and other extra-curricular activities can also be listed.

Students can earn credentials through several different means like work experience, course grades, internships completion, ICenter projects and portfolio evaluation, among others. As you might expect, students near the end of a degree program will have displayed a greater number of credentials than those just starting. The Credential mix will even vary from program to program, giving each its own blend.

Why use Credentialing?
The purpose of the Credential Transcript is to help students articulate their skill sets to potential employers. A student can also use the Credential Transcript to monitor his or her own professional and personal development.
