The Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) lists the courses and associated grades that have been attempted or will be attempted for high school college credit. It replaces the high school transcripts used by the Office of Admissions during the initial admissions process in most cases. All freshman applicants, with a few exceptions, will enter their courses, grades, class rank (if provided on transcript) and graduation plan in the SRAR. Since 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.
The Texas A&M University SRAR is separate from the admissions application and can be linked to your application only after submitting the online application. A SRAR account can be created at any time. Upon completion of the SRAR and submission of your application, you must link your SRAR to your Texas A&M University application by clicking the link in the ‘Documents Required for Admission’ checklist displayed in our Applicant Information System (AIS).
Who is required to complete the SRAR?
All freshman applicants must complete a SRAR with the following exceptions:
Applicants not completing high school in the U.S. - must submit official or certified copies of 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 along with official partial high school transcript(s).
The following applicants are required to submit a high school transcript.
Texas residents reporting a top ten percent ranking must submit the SRAR and also provide verification of ranking by submitting an official high school transcript with a relative numeric ranking via TREx or the upload feature in AIS.
Applicants not completing high school in the U.S. will not submit a SRAR butmust submit official or certified copies of all secondary school records and/or examination results. All academic records not in English must be accompanied by a certified English translation. See our website for more details.
GED graduates will not submit a SRAR but must submit their official GED transcript along with official partial high school transcript(s). The original certificate and transcript(s) may be sent by mail or hand delivered to Admissions Customer Service.
Applicants who have already graduated high school must submit a SRAR and a final high school transcript.
Yes, Texas residents reporting a top-10% ranking must fill out the SRAR and must also provide verification of ranking by submitting an official high school transcript with a relative numeric ranking via TREx or the upload feature in AIS.
Yes, all students must provide the SRAR in order to complete their file unless you are one of the exceptions noted above. The SRAR replaces the high school transcript previously used by the Office of Admissions in the initial admissions process in most cases.
All domestic freshman applicants (excluding the exceptions noted above) must complete the SRAR. If you are unable to complete the SRAR for reasons other than you simply did not get it done, you may contact the Office of Admissions using the ‘Contact Us’ – ‘Ask a Question’ feature in AIS, use subject code SRAR and let us know why you are unable to provide the SRAR.
Admissions staff will instruct you as to how to complete your file.
If your U.S. transcript lists credits and grades for the coursework you completed outside of the United States, you may complete a SRAR. If your transcript only lists courses taken at your U.S. school then you will need to submit transcripts from both your U.S. school and the international school attended.
You should list the high schools attended and the dates of attendance on the SRAR. Enter all of your courses (regardless of how many different schools you attended) under the school you are currently attending. If you have attended multiple schools and the courses and grades are not reflected on your current high school transcript, you should obtain a copy of the transcript(s) from your previous school(s) and enter courses and grades under your current school. NOTE: you will be required to enter GPA/Class Rank information for all schools attended. We expect that you will have a GPA and perhaps a class rank for the school you are currently attending but perhaps not from the other schools. Please enter the GPA and rank (if available) on your current school record. For any other schools attended, select the options shown below:
GPA / Class Rank
Cumulative Weighted GPA:
This school does not calculate or report a weighted GPA.
Cumulative Unweighted GPA:
This school does not calculate or report an unweighted GPA.
You must first apply to the university and set up your access to our Applicant Information System (AIS) by creating a NetID and password. Texas A&M will send students instructions concerning creating a NetID 2-4 business days after receipt of the application. Once you are able to access AIS you can link your SRAR to your application by clicking the link in the ‘Documents Required for Admission’ checklist displayed in ourApplicant Information System (AIS). 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 days.
You may begin the SRAR at any time, beginning July 1. Although you may submit your SRAR before submitting your application for admission, you will not be able to link your SRAR to your application until your application has been submitted (see instructions above). You will not be considered for admission until your application, essay, application fee, and SRAR have been received.
On average, it takes 15-45 minutes to enter your coursework and complete the SRAR. Processing of the transcript information is also very quick — once transmitted to Texas A&M, it should show up on your record with 24-48 hours.
Yes, if they have followed an academic curriculum patterned after the traditional U.S. system. If the curriculum followed cannot be represented on the SRAR, then applicants should provide an official high school transcript and contact the Office of Admissions using the ‘Contact Us’ – ‘Ask a Question' feature in AIS, use subject code SRAR, letting us know why they are unable to provide the SRAR.
Homeschool students will need a high school transcript in hand in order to complete the SRAR. Your homeschool administrator, probably your parent, should provide you with a high school transcript which very likely will list the college courses in place of a high school course. For example, a student takes English 1301 and English 1302 in place of English 3 or 11th grade English; the transcript can list both English 1301 and 1302 as courses taken in 11th grade for one semester each. Do not list both the college courses and the high school course for which the courses ‘substitute.’ Enter courses and grades exactly as they appear on your high school transcript.
If you have taken college coursework at an institution of Higher Education including a community/junior college or online college and it is not Dual Enrollment or part of an Early College High School, do not enter the college coursework on your SRAR. The only time you should enter college coursework on your SRAR is when you are participating in Dual Enrollment, Early College High School or have specific approval from your high school to take college courses for high school credit. Only enter courses and grades that are on your high school transcript. Students can request that their college send an official college transcript to Texas A&M University, College Station, to report the courses.
No, only enter courses that are present on your high school transcript. You should request that your college send an official college transcript to Texas A&M University, College Station. Electronic submission of transcripts is preferred.
Students graduating from high school 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.
Please enter your grades AS THEY APPEAR ON YOUR TRANSCRIPT OR OFFICIAL SCORE REPORT.
Enter your final official grades for all courses in grades 9–11.
If your school gives final official grades at the end of each year you should enter those grades as “Full Year”.
Time-saving tip: You do not need to enter marking period or term (e.g., quarter, semester, trimester) grades if your transcript shows your full-year final grades. Just enter the full year final grades.
If your school only gives final official grades by term or semester (that is, it doesn’t show full-year final course grades) then list each course with its final grade by term or semester.
Please do not apply any grade format conversions or weights to your grades; just enter them as they appear on your transcript.
Senior/12th grade and courses in progress:
High school seniors should choose "In Progress" for scheduled/current 12th-grade courses for which they do not yet have grades.
If you have already completed a 12th-grade course and received a grade, please indicate the grade received.
If your exact course name is not on the drop-down list, just type it in exactly as it appears on your transcript.
If your transcript does not fall into one of the categories provided in the SRAR, please email the Office of Admissions at email@example.com.
No, if the generic Course Name is specific enough to clearly identify it with the same course on your transcript. For example, English 9 is the same course as English I. If you’re not sure, then please enter the course as it appears on your transcript. When entering courses under the ‘Other Subject Area,’ you will want to enter the Course Name. Per the example below, you took a Baking Basics course, you would replace Culinary Arts with ‘Baking Basics.’
If your schedule changes, you should update your SRAR if it has not been submitted. To make changes to the SRAR, simply log in to the SRAR website with the email address and password used to create your original SRAR. If you have submitted the SRAR then contact the Office of Admissions using the ‘Contact Us’ – ‘Ask a Question’ feature in AIS, use subject code SRAR, and note the changes.
You should report all grades exactly as they are listed on your transcript. You will use the Course Level field on the SRAR to indicate the type of course (e.g., honors, AP, IB, dual enrollment, etc.).
You should report all courses exactly as they are listed on your transcript. You will use the Course Level field on the SRAR to indicate the course was dual credit/enrollment. Do not enter the college courses (i.e. English 1301) on SRAR if it is not present on your transcript or anticipated college credit for AP exams.
Yes, all attempted coursework must be reported on the SRAR. If you repeated a course, you must record both attempts. If you withdrew from a class before earning a grade, you must list the course and record the grade as withdrawn. The same is true for courses that you earned a grade of Pass or Fail.
You must list all courses in which you earned a grade of Pass or Fail. The same is true for attempts on your SRAR including repeats and withdrawals. Your SRAR must match exactly what is on your high school transcript.
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 Theodore Roosevelt High School, enter "Roosevelt" 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.
No. If you have corrections or your schedule changes, contact the Office of Admissions using the ‘Contact Us’ – ‘Ask a Question’ feature in AIS, use subject code SRAR or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know what changes are needed.
Only admitted students planning to enroll at Texas A&M are required to send their finalofficial high school transcript by August 15 prior to the start of the fall semester. You do not have to submit your senior grades prior to submitting the final transcript.
Provide the best estimation of the courses you will be taking when completing the SRAR. If your schedule changes, contact the Office of Admissions using the ‘Contact Us’ – ‘Ask a Question’ feature in AIS, use subject code SRAR and tell us about the change.
Only applicants offered admission who plan to enroll at Texas A&M are required to submit official high school and college transcripts after graduation. Final official high school transcripts must be received by August 15. College transcripts should be provided prior to your New Student Conference if possible. All transcripts will be used to validate the information on the SRAR. Students with inaccurate data on the SRAR may have their admission revoked or have their registration canceled if enrolled.
