Robert Morris is one of the few universities in the country to use a Student Credential Transcript. The purpose of the Credential Transcript is to help document and articulate universal skills that all employers seek. Students can use the Credential Transcript to monitor his or her own professional and personal development.
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:
- Oral Communication
- Written Communication
- Creative Thinking
- Critical Thinking
- Cultural Awareness
- 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.
To view your Student Credentialing Transcript please log into your portal at:rmuapp.robertmorris.edu/rmulogin.
Do you have your own evidence that you would like us to consider? You can submit your evidence to the Dean of Assessment for consideration to earn additional credential levels.
