SSAR is the student self-reported academic record that lists the courses and associated grades that have been attempted, or will be attempted, for high school and/or college credit. It replaces the high school and college transcripts used by the Office of Admissions during the initial review process. All freshman applicants, with a few exceptions, will enter their courses and grades in the SSAR. The SSAR should be submitted and linked with your application by December 1.
If you need more help, we also have a SSAR tutorial available.
1. If your school only assigns semester grades, you will enter your semester grades as shown on your high school transcript into the appropriate places in the SSAR.
2. If your school only assigns a final grade for each class taken, you will enter the final grade twice (first semester and second semester) for year-long classes (one credit), and once (either first semester or second semester) for semester-long classes (1/2 credit). For example, if you earned a grade of B in Algebra I which is a year-long class (1 credit), you will enter that grade twice (first semester and second semester). If you took Trigonometry which is a semester-long class (1/2 credit), you will enter that grade only once in whichever semester you took the class.
3. If your school assigns both semester grades and a final grade, only use the final grade when entering your grades in the SSAR. For example, if you took Algebra I and earned an A in the first semester and a B in the second semester and your final grade is B, you will enter a grade of B twice (first semester and second semester) in the SSAR.
4. If your school assigns trimester grades and a final grade, only use the final grade, the same principle as in #3. If the class is a year-long class you will use the final grade and enter it twice in the SSAR. If the class is only for one trimester, enter the final grade on either the first or second semester field.
If your transcript does not fall into one of the above categories, please call the Office of Admissions at 352-392-1365 or email us.
