RCRSPs are required to track their own attendance at sessions. To assist you in doing so, NIRSA 2019 will issue courtesy transcripts to those who request one by completing a session evaluation. To receive a courtesy transcript, you must include your name and email when prompted at the end of each session evaluation. A transcript of your attendance will be sent to you within 6 weeks after the event for you to keep for your files.

  • To renew their credential, RCRSP designation holders must earn 4.5 CEUs within three years.  They must submit a list of qualifying education activities with their renewal application. It is the intention of the transcript to help you with your recordkeeping, but NIRSA does not maintain this information for you nor does NIRSA track RCRSP designation holders’ attendance at events.
  • For more information about earning and maintaining your RCRSP credential, please refer to the RCRSP Handbook which can be accessed on the Registry website.
