Student Self-Reported Academic Record (SSAR)
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.
How to Submit the SSAR:
After You Apply:
- A link to create your SSAR will appear on your myAdmissions status page.
- Complete your SSAR with your high school and college transcripts.
- Submit and link your SSAR to your application.
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.
All freshman applicants must complete a SSAR with the following exemptions:
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.
Incomplete and Incorrect SSAR
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.
Middle School Courses for High School Credit
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.
SSAR Changes after Submission
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.
How to make changes:
- Log in to your Check Status portal and use the SSAR button to access and update your SSAR.
- 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.
Sending Official Final Transcripts
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.
