The Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) is a list of your courses and associated grades that have been completed or will be completed for high school or college credit. The SRAR is required for domestic first-year US students and replaces the official high school transcript during the Admissions Committee review process. Since accuracy is critical, please have an electronic version of your official grade report or an official high school transcript to reference as you are completing the SRAR. For a tutorial on how to fill out the SRAR, please refer to the video instructions or FAQs below!
Yes, the SRAR is required for the University of Pittsburgh first-year application process for domestic US first-year applicants. If you are admitted to the University of Pittsburgh, you will need to submit your final high school transcript as proof of graduation. The process for international students and transfer students has not changed and they should follow their respective admission processes.
The SRAR is a required part of the online application process for first-year domestic US applicants. You will be required to provide profile information in addition to the SRAR to submit the application. You will enter your high school(s), GPA and class rank where available, coursework, and associated grades online. For helpful tips on completing the SRAR, watch our tutorial videos.
Yes, we do. We do not access the grades section in the Common Application. Once you submit your Common Application, we will send you a link to fill out our SRAR separately.
We encourage you to apply early, so senior courses should be listed but appear as “In Progress.”
List the courses exactly as they appear on your transcript or schedule and in the semester during which the courses were taken.
Any core curriculum course taken for high school credit must be listed on the SRAR. Enter the course in the appropriate year. The SRAR includes options from 7th through 12th grade. However, unless courses were taken for high school credit, you do not need to include middle or junior high school courses on the SRAR.
For courses taken during the summer, list the course and associated grade in the preceding school year. For example, if you took a summer course between 9th and 10th grade, you will list the course and grade in the final semester of your 9th grade year on the SRAR.
You must list all courses that you’ve attempted on the SRAR. If the course appears on your transcript, it must accurately be listed on the SRAR as well.
If you attended more than one high school, you will add all high schools attended to the SRAR and list coursework and associated grades within each high school. It will be helpful to have a transcript from each school attended when completing the SRAR.
Despite how your district defines earlier grades, please include coursework and associated grades from 9th through 12th grade.
Log into your online application, click on “Academic Record”, then select “Update SRAR”. You are then required to resubmit the Academic Record section for your changes to be reflected.
If you are admitted and enroll at the University of Pittsburgh, you will be required to submit your official high school transcript following high school graduation.
