Beginning this academic year, Florida Atlantic University has made important changes in how we process high school transcripts. The University has adopted the Self-Reported Student Academic Record (SSAR). This new method allows students to enter all courses and associated grades that have been attempted, or will be attempted, for high school and/or college credit without requiring the submission of an official transcript to the university (official transcripts will be required after high school graduation only).
At this point, there are two options to complete the process:
1) Go to appstatus.fau.edu and click on the SSAR option. Create/Log in with your SSAR account and submit your SSAR to link it to your FAU application.
2) Another option is to login using your SSAR account and FAU application confirmation number at https://ssar.selfreportedtranscript.com/Login.aspx. After you complete SSAR, go to the FAU SSAR linking page with your SSAR credentials and FAU application confirmation number and select CONTINUE and then submit your SSAR to FAU
After you have completed your FAU admissions application, you will receive a confirmation email that we received your admissions application. You must complete your FAU application first in order to link your SSAR. Click on the “Link Self-Reported Academic Record” in your confirmation email to go to the SSAR record.
We recommend that you complete the SSAR after submitting your application for admission. Your application for admission will not be reviewed until your application fee, SSAR, and test scores have been received.
