Applying As A

Student Self-Reported Academic Record (SSAR)

The SSAR must be submitted by November 15. Once you have submitted your application, a link will appear on your check status page to create your SSAR. You must complete and submit the SSAR for your application to be complete. If you choose to begin your SSAR separately before submitting your application to UF, you will need to link it through your application portal once your Common Application has been submitted. Unless exempt from the SSAR requirement as described below, UF will not require official transcripts from students unless they have been offered admission into the freshman class.

SSAR Support Center

If you have questions about how to complete the SSAR, refer to the SSAR Support Center for instructions, FAQs, and to submit a question.



SSAR Deadline

by November 15

If you have met the November 1 application deadline, submit the SSAR no later than November 15. If your SSAR is received after November 15, your application will be considered on a space-available basis.

Students who have applied after November 1 should submit the SSAR no later than March 1.


All freshman applicants must complete a SSAR with the following exceptions:

  • GED Graduates

    Instead of the SSAR, GED graduates must submit their official GED results, along with official partial high school transcript(s).

  • Students who attended a school outside of the U.S.

    Any student who attended a high school outside of the U.S. for more than one semester, regardless of whether they graduated/will graduate from a United States high school, will be exempt from submitting the SSAR. Refer to international admissions for more information on submitting transcripts.

  • Attending a high school that does not give A-F grades

    While rare, some students attend schools that do not provide A-F grades or do not provide grades that can be easily converted to A-F grades. This would include narrative evaluations, a mastery transcript, or other non-standard evaluation. If you believe this applies to you, contact the Office of Admissions after submitting your application.

If you have followed an educational curriculum patterned after the traditional U.S. system, you will complete the SSAR. If the curriculum followed cannot be represented on the SSAR, contact Admissions via our Contact Us page for further instruction.

All freshman applicants who are not exempt from the SSAR requirement as outlined above must complete and link the SSAR for admission. Note that a high school transcript submitted from the high school or through a third-party vendor, like Naviance or Parchment, DOES NOT substitute for the SSAR requirement. The Courses & Grades section of the Common App also DOES NOT meet the SSAR requirement. If you are unable to complete the SSAR, contact Admissions via our Contact Us page.

Once submitted, your SSAR will be reviewed by our committee. If a mistake is noted (for example, a one credit class reported incorrectly), you will receive an email stating the mistake(s). To complete the SSAR requirement, you will need to fix the mistake and resubmit your SSAR.

Every academic course that you attempted for high school credit while in middle school must be listed on the SSAR. The SSAR entry process allows you to state that the courses were taken while in middle school.

We want your SSAR to be as accurate as possible. If you need to make corrections, or if your schedule changes, you should update your SSAR. To make changes, log in to your Check Status portal and use the SSAR button to access and update your SSAR. Make sure to resubmit the form once you have finished making changes. Changes and corrections should be made prior to the November 15 SSAR deadline. After this date, your SSAR information will be locked for editing. If a change is necessary after this deadline, contact Admissions via our Contact Us page.

If you are admitted to UF and choose to enroll, you will be required to submit an official final transcript from your high school and any college you have attended by July 15 for verification by the Office of Admissions. Admissions will use your transcript(s) to verify the accuracy of your SSAR.
