How do I find out which colleges need the SSAR?

Hello folks, I'm in the process of college apps and I keep hearing about the SSAR - the Self-reported Student Academic Record. Can someone tell me which colleges require this? I want to make sure I don't miss anything.

Hey there! The SSAR, or Self-reported Student Academic Record, is indeed an important element of the college application process for some institutions. Colleges that require the SSAR typically list this requirement on their admissions webpage. However, a comprehensive and up-to-date list of colleges that use the SSAR can be harder to find since it can vary each year.

My suggestion would be to check the application requirements for each college on your list directly through their official websites. Also, don't hesitate to get in touch with the admissions offices if you have any questions – they're there to help! In addition, some application platforms, such as the Common App, may indicate if a college uses the SSAR.

As a general rule, make sure to start gathering your academic information early so you're ready to fill out the SSAR if needed. It will ask for details from your high school transcript, so having that on hand will be a big help. Good luck with your applications!
