Some Notes on How to Fill out the SSAR

Last Updated by Jason Robinovitz on December 3, 2019

More schools than ever in the State University System of Florida are requesting the SSAR (Self-reported Student Academic Record) in lieu of an official transcript as part of the application. This self-reporting process is fairly straightforward: Students create an account with SSAR and, using a copy of their transcript, enter courses, schedules, grades, and course weighting (AP, Honors, etc.). Following submission of a college application, students will link the SSAR to their applications, typically through their applicant portals − or as part of the application itself, depending on the university. Currently, seven SUS schools require the SSAR: FAU, FGCU, FL Poly, FSU, New College, UF, and UNF.

Applying to UF or FSU? Then you'll need to complete the SSAR

Applying to UF or FSU? Don’t forget to complete your SSAR (Student Self-Reported Academic Record) instead of sending your official high school transcript. In fact, don’t send a transcript unless you’re accepted and make a commitment to attend one of these universities.

Both FSU and UF recommend that you complete the SSAR before submitting your application – and, luckily, they use the same SSAR, so you only have to complete it once if you’re applying to both of them.
