Freshman Transcript Submission

ֱ's front entrance digital sign.

Students attending ֱ as an incoming freshman must submit transcripts to enroll at the university. Below are definitions of the types of transcripts that may be requested and how to complete the requirement:

Required for a Complete Application/Admissions Decision

  • Student Self-Reported Academic Record (SSAR) – required for U.S.-based students: Students who are based in the U.S. must complete and submit the SSAR instead of submitting a partial high school transcript. You must self-report the grades you have received, or expect to receive, to support your application before we can render an admissions decision.

    • In your Thanks for Applying email, there is a link to access your personal SSAR account. If you cannot find it, please log into the to access your SSAR account.

    • If you have questions about the SSAR process or your eligibility to submit the SSAR, visit our SSAR FAQ website.

  • Partial High School Transcript required for non-U.S.-based students: Students not based in the U.S. must submit partial high school transcripts for admission consideration before we can render an admission decision. A partial high school transcript reflects all courses taken so far, including in-progress courses. These typically will not include your high school graduation date or final complete courses since they are typically provided before you finish high school.

    • Instructions on how to submit partial high school transcripts are listed in the next section. Make sure to select the instructions that correspond with the location and type of school you attend.

Required for Final Enrollment at ֱ

  • Final High School Transcriptrequired for all incoming students: Regardless of residency status in the U.S., all incoming freshman students must supply their final high school transcript after graduation. Your final high school transcript must include your graduation date and all courses must be listed as completed.

    • Please note: Students who submitted the SSAR are subject to review to ensure the final high school transcript accurately matches the self-reported information given to render an admissions decision. If this information is different, your offer of admission may be rescinded.

    • If you do not submit these documents by the deadline, your enrollment at the University of South Florida will be canceled. The deadlines for final transcript submission are:
      • June 15 - Summer start

      • July 15 - Fall start


How to Submit Transcripts

We encourage all incoming students to submit their final transcripts electronically. The ֱ’s school code is 001537.

Electronic submission is available through different providers based on where you attended school. Pay close attention to your eligible providers to ensure your transcripts are submitted properly.
