Self Reported Academic Record (SRAR)

Some colleges and universities are now requiring a Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). The SRAR is an applicant-completed list of courses and corresponding grades that replaces the high school transcripts used by the Office of Admissions during the application review process. While official copies of transcripts are not required during this part of the admissions review process, the SRAR must be completed before a student’s application is reviewed. Ultimately, this is the college's first glance at you outside of your application.

Accuracy is crucial—make sure you use your high school transcript when completing this. I would encourage you to have a printed copy on hand when you complete your SRAR so you can mark the courses off as you enter them.

7 SRAR Tips:

1. Pay close attention to the codes (see below).  These tell you what level the course is (honors, dual credit, AP, etc.)

2. List EVERY class that you earned credit in (YES, extracurricular classes, too!)

3. List the classes exactly as they are listed

4. Make sure you list the class in the correct semester (Example: If you took Health second semester, make sure you mark it as the second semester)

5. Make sure you list the correct credit count: English 4 (full-year class) is 1 credit Government and Economics (1-semester classes) are .5 each

6. Make sure you're using a transcript to enter your coursework- N🚫T a report card or profile

7. Have someone proof your work BEFORE you hit submit
