Some Notes on How to Fill out the SSAR

Last Updated on Dec 3, 2019 2:58:57 PM

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.
