Self-Reported Student Academic Record (SSAR)

As you continue down this path of essays, filling out applications, asking for recommendations, etc., there is a unique process for some colleges for transcripts requests: Self-Reported Student Academic Record (SSAR). Instead of submitting traditional transcripts, the SSAR allows you to self-report your academic information, including course names, grades, credits earned, and standardized test scores. The SSAR is a critical component of your college application, and it plays a significant role in helping admission committees assess your academic achievements throughout high school.

Current Colleges request students to utilize the SSAR:

  • Binghamton University, State University of New York

  • Clemson University

To ensure a smooth and successful application process, please follow these steps to complete your SSAR:

  1. Create an Account: Visit the respective application portal for the college or university you are applying to and create an account.

  2. Enter Your Academic Information: Once you have logged in to the application portal, navigate to the SSAR section and carefully input your academic details. Double-check all entries to ensure accuracy.

  3. Transcripts and Test Scores: Remember that you will still need to arrange for official transcripts and standardized test scores (e.g., SAT, ACT) to be sent directly to the colleges and universities you are applying to. The SSAR complements these official documents and provides a more comprehensive view of your academic record.

  4. Application Deadlines: Take note of the application deadlines for each institution you apply to. Completing the SSAR well before the deadlines will give you ample time to address any issues that may arise.

  5. Seek Help if Needed: If you encounter any technical difficulties or have questions about the SSAR, don't hesitate to contact the admissions office or your college advisor.

  6. Accuracy and Honesty: It is crucial to report your academic information accurately and honestly. Any intentional misrepresentation of your academic record can have severe consequences and may jeopardize your chances of admission.
