The Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) is a tool that allows applicants to self-report their courses, grades, class rank, and other academic information. Beginning Fall 2022, UTSA is requiring first-time freshman applicants to submit a Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) instead of an official sixth-semester high school transcript.
The Self-Reported Academic Record will benefit applicants in the following ways:
- The SRAR allows applicants to complete their application to UTSA quickly. Because you no longer have to request for your high school to send a transcript at the time of application, this eliminates the time it takes for your high school to send transcripts and for UTSA to receive and process the document.
- The SRAR can be linked to other colleges/Universities utilizing this system, eliminating duplication of effort.
- Applicants will only need to request for an official transcript to be sent to UTSA once if accepted, after high school graduation and by August 15.
Freshman Applicants Only
All freshman applicants, with a few exceptions, will need to submit a SRAR record to complete their admission file.
Who is required to complete the SRAR?
Who is NOT required to complete the SRAR?
- International freshman applicants must submit official transcripts documenting all secondary school records and/or examination results. All academic records not in English must be accompanied by a certified English translation.
- Domestic freshman applicants not completing high school in the US must submit official transcripts documenting all secondary school records and/or examination results. All academic records not in English must be accompanied by a certified English translation.
- GED graduates must submit their official GED transcript.
- Freshman applicants who have already graduated high school must submit an official final high school transcript.
In most cases, this requirement replaces the sixth-semester High School Transcripts used by the Office of Admission during the initial admission review process. Once UTSA has received your application, you will be able to access your SRAR link through your ASAP student portal (under the Future Roadrunner tab).
Accuracy is Critical
Since UTSA will be using the information from the SRAR to make an admission decision, accuracy is critical. We highly recommend that you have a copy of your high school transcript available to use as a reference when you create your SRAR. Before getting started, please ensure you can access an accurate source for your courses and grades (e.g., from your online grade report or unofficial transcript). For accurate grade representation, be prepared to enter all official final grades, course attempts, repeats, and withdrawals exactly as they appear; do not apply weight to your grades, convert your grades into another format, or average any grades. UTSA will compare the applicant’s SRAR and final high school transcript once the applicant has been accepted to UTSA and discrepancies can affect your original admission decision or financial aid offer.
If you have questions about the SRAR website or trouble using the website, contact SRAR Technical Support.

Frequently Asked Questions
I already have a SRAR. How do I send it to UTSA?
You must first apply to the university and activate your myUTSA ID. After applying to UTSA, you should receive an email from myUTSAaccount@utsa.edu with a link and instructions to activate your myUTSA ID account. Once activated, you will use your myUTSA ID and passphrase to log into just about everything at UTSA, including your student portal called “ASAP”. Upon completion/submission of the SRAR and linking the SRAR to your university record, we should receive your document and record its receipt within a few business days.
How do I create my SRAR?
The SRAR is completed separately from your admissions Application. You can access the UTSA SRAR website online at or through your ASAP application portal under the Student Services tab.
How do I enter courses?
Please adhere to the following when entering courses in SRAR:
- Select the appropriate Subject Area and then choose the Generic Course Title that best describes the subject matter of the course. Under Course Name, you may modify the generic course title to exactly what is listed on your transcript.
- When selecting a Course Level, refer to your high school transcript. Your transcript will indicate the level at which you took the course (i.e. honors, AP, College Prep, etc.) If your transcript does not identify the course level for a course, it is considered a “Standard” course.
- Select the Course Length that be represents how long you took and course and how your school issues final grades (one final grade, semester grades, etc.).
- When entering course Credits/Units values, enter the credit value exactly as it appears on your high school transcript.
- If your school gives final official grades at the end of each year, then enter that grade as “Full Year”
- If your school gives final official grades by term or semester, then list each course with its final grade by term or semester. You may list the same course twice if repeated in a different term. Give the final grade for each term if that is how it appears on your year-end final transcript.
How do I enter grades?
Please adhere to the following when entering grades in SRAR:
- Enter your grades exactly as they appear on your high school transcript or your score report. We will verify your grades upon receipt of your official final high school transcript. Failure to accurately report grades could risk losing your offer of admission.
- If you are a high school senior, choose “In-Progress” for scheduled or in-progress 12th grade courses for which you do not yet have grades. If you have already completed a 12th grade course and received a grade, please indicate the grade that you received.
- Do not apply weight to your grades.
- Do not convert your grades into another format.
- Do not average your grades.
If your school uses plus/minus grading system, enter your grades exactly as they appear on your transcript.
Once you have accurately entered all your coursework and grades, proceed to the Review/Submit section.
If you see a warning message at the top of the page or see red warning text throughout your coursework, this means you missed something. Please review the warning and fix any issues. You cannot submit your SRAR until you no longer see any warning messages.
Once you have fixed any issues and have done a final review of your record, click the “Submit” at the bottom of the page.
Can I start the SRAR and return to it later without submitting?
Yes, you may begin the SRAR and work on it gradually. Be sure to select “Save” or “Save Course” (if prompted) before leaving a screen or logging out.
I am a homeschool student, should I complete the SRAR?
Yes, if you followed an educational curriculum patterned after the traditional U.S. system. If the curriculum followed cannot be represented on the SRAR, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
What if I can't find my high school listed on the SRAR website?
The SRAR website uses a database of names from College Board, which may vary slightly from the everyday name of your school. When searching for your school, try to use variants of the official school name. For example, if you attended Robert E. Lee High School, enter “Lee” in the search box. Make sure you select the correct city and state. If you still can’t find your high school, you may click here in the prompt ‘If your school is not listed, click here’ to contact support for assistance. Please include the name and address of the school in your message.
How will I know if my GPA is weighted or unweighted?
Most schools put a weighted GPA on the transcript so assume it is weighted unless otherwise noted on the transcript.
What if I repeated or withdrew from one or more of my courses, or I took a course for Pass/Fail?
Please list all attempts on your SRAR, including repeats and withdrawals; the same is true for courses in which your grade was Pass or Fail. Your SRAR must match exactly what is on your high school transcript. Pass/Fail grades will be included/worked into your Core GPA calculation.
How do I report my senior coursework?
Since applicants often apply early in their senior year, you should list your courses and enter the grades as “In Progress.” If you have already completed the first semester of your senior year and grades are available, please enter the earned grades.
What happens if I am attending/graduating from a non-ranking school?
The Office of Admissions will assign a ranking based on the information included in your SRAR. The rank for home-schooled students will be assigned based on the official SAT/ACT scores per Texas Legislation.
What does it mean when it asks for the graduation/diploma plan?
Students graduating from public high schools in Texas will be asked to select their graduation/diploma plan. The following are the options. If you do not know or your school does not provide a graduation plan, select Not Applicable/Do Not Know.
I submitted SRAR during my application; do I still have to submit my final high school transcript?
Admitted freshman planning to enroll at UTSA are required to send their final official high school transcript by August 15 prior to the start of the fall semester. Please request for your high school counselor to submit official high school transcripts to UTSA. Learn more about how to submit your transcripts to UTSA.
Will errors on the grade submission cause UTSA to rescind my offer of admission? How will this notification of offer revocation occur?
UTSA will compare the applicant’s SRAR and final high school transcript once the applicant has been accepted to UTSA and the final high school transcript has been received. Good judgement will be followed by staff as they validate the final transcripts and SRAR. Malice-free errors will occur, and every effort will be made to fairly judge intent.
As an institution of higher education, we take academic dishonesty seriously. If it is determined that you intentionally misrepresent your SRAR, at UTSA’s discretion, you will be notified and your offer of admission at UTSA will be rescinded. View the UTSA Student Policies.
