FSU tells you that “Upon completion of the SSAR, you will be given a SSAR ID Number that must be provided to Florida State to allow us to retrieve your SSAR. You will be asked to provide the SSAR ID Number in Part II (Checklist) of the application for admission or you can provide your SSAR ID Number through your Online Status Check.

New College: After submitting your Common App, New College will send you an email with a customized link and PIN so you can access your Applicant Status page. On that page will be a link to the SSAR website. This will allow you to create a new SSAR (or link your existing SSAR) with your Common App ID.

Hopefully, all of these datails help you in your application process.
