College is all about gaining knowledge and experience!
A great way to show off your experience is with your DelVal Experience Transcript. To get started, get involved – join a campus club, participate in community service, attend campus programs and connect with a professional in your field. The DelVal Experience Transcript brings this all these opportunities together!
What is the DelVal Experience Transcript?
The DelVal Experience Transcript is an official document of your involvement and accomplishments at DelVal as part of Experience360 (formerly the Experiential Learning Program). It is beneficial because it helps you realize the skills you’re picking up outside the classroom and how they translate to skills that can be highlighted on resumes and cover letters and in interviews. The transcript captures the E360 activities that you have registered in at DelVal, as well as your College-specific student involvement, including community service, awards, clubs, organizations, and athletics. Collectively, this involvement reflects important skills that add to the total college experience and prepare you as a lifelong learner and citizen.
Why is the DelVal Experience Transcript useful?
The DelVal Experience Transcript complements a student’s résumé and academic transcript by specifying achievements and activities for employment, graduate school admission counselors or fellowship or scholarship evaluators.
How do I access and receive a copy of my DelVal Experience Transcript?
A student is able to view their unofficial DelVal Experience Transcript and also request their official DelVal Experience Transcript via ExperienceLink in the Experiential Learning module.

How is the DelVal Experience Transcript validated?
Information for the DelVal Experience Transcript is collected from registered Experience360 activities and registered student involvement activities through the Division of Student Affairs. The Center for Student Professional Development and the Office of Student Involvement will review all submissions. Once participation is validated, the activity will be entered and included in the DelVal Experience Transcript. After successful completion of the activity through the Center for Student Professional Development, registered E360 activities will automatically be included on your transcript via ExperienceLink.
Clubs and organizations, NCAA athletics, community service, civic engagement, leadership activities, and awards and professional development activities will be reviewed by the student involvement office.

Depending on a student’s role in the organization, executive positions may be included on the transcript. Athletic team rosters are recorded by the athletics office.
