No, Florida Atlantic University does not require one to be submitted. FAU uses the Self-reported Student Academic Record (SSAR).
All freshman applicants must complete an SSAR, with the following exceptions:
The Common Application is used by a large number of colleges, many who do require a school report. When a student submits an application via the Common Application, regardless of how many colleges they apply to, their college counselor is asked to submit one school report - which is made available to all colleges on the Common Application. FAU however, will not use the school report. We require the SSAR.
The Common Application does require students to provide a counselor contact information. However, Florida Atlantic University requires no further action on behalf of the counselor. FAU does not require a school report to be uploaded and submitted at the time of the application, as the SSAR will provide us with the necessary information needed for application review.
Florida Atlantic will still receive the student's Common Application even if a school report has not been uploaded.
No. The Common Application provides the ability to invite recommenders to submit information to colleges on your behalf, however, Florida Atlantic University does not require applicants to submit recommendations as part of the holistic review of an application.
No. The information gathered from the school report will be collected through the SSAR.
