Self-Reported Academic Record

Self-Reported Academic Record

First-year domestic students are required to submit their high school grades through Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). To learn more about the SRAR, please see the step-by-step video series below as well as our FAQs.

The Self-Reported Academic Record or SRAR is a website for students to report their high school grades instead of sending a transcript. Transcripts are no longer required for the UD application. If a student is admitted and chooses to enroll at UD, official final transcripts will then be required.

Using the UD SRAR website, students applying to UD will report their grades exactly as they appear on their transcript (80, B, B-, etc.). It is important for students to have a copy of their transcript on hand when completing the SRAR form. A student’s SRAR will be part of our admissions and merit-scholarship decisions. We will compare the SRAR to the final high school transcript should a student enroll at the University of Delaware.


  • Enter all courses and grades from 9 – 11 as reported on your transcript along with your grade 12 schedule. Enter "IP" for "in progress" in the section for your senior-year grades.

  • Your GPA should be entered as it is recorded on your transcript. If both weighted and unweighted averages are provided, you should enter the weighted average. Do not apply any additional weight to your grades or convert your grades into another format.

  • You should choose the grading scale that mirrors your high school transcript (whether letter or numerical grades, calculated by semester, quarter, and/or final). 

    • Do not average your grades. If your transcript shows one column of final grades, those are the only grades you need to report. If you receive final grades more than once a year, record each grade as you see it. Within the “High Schools Attended” section, you should select the best answer to “Most courses at my school are" to indicate how many grades you will report (yearly = one final grade, semester = two grades, etc.).

  • Your 12th grade work may be listed as “in progress” or "IP" unless you have final grades available when completing your SRAR.

  • If you completed a course in 8th grade that is listed on your high school transcript, you may include it in your SRAR, but it will not be considered by the University of Delaware. We will only include coursework completed for grades 9 – 12.

  • If you completed a class unique to your school and an appropriate title is not provided by SRAR, type it in exactly as it appears on your high school transcript.

  • If you took dual-enrollment or college-level coursework that is listed on your high school transcript, you will add it to your courses in SRAR and list the course level as dual enrollment. If you completed a college-level course outside of your high school work (one that is not on your high school transcript), you will add the college or university to your “High Schools/Colleges” section and provide the course information under that college or university. You should list each college-level class only once.

How to Check the Status of Your SRAR:

Yes, if you are applying directly from a high school in the United States or if you were homeschooled and followed a traditional U.S. educational curriculum. 

International applicants should visit our international admissions requirements webpage for information on how to send us copies of their transcript(s). Those with a GED do not need to submit the SRAR, but they are required to send their GED results to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

You can create your SRAR account and work on your SRAR at any time, but should submit it after submitting your application. This can be completed using the link found on the application checklist of your student portal, My Blue Hen Home. (Log-in information for your portal will be supplied after you begin your application.)  


Keep in mind that you should submit by the appropriate application deadline. If you are applying for our early action deadline, you should submit your SRAR no later than Nov. 1. For regular decision, you should submit by the priority deadline of Jan. 15. 


Be advised: Students who have completed their SRAR must link it to their UD application and then click “submit” at the end of the SRAR. Again, you can find the link in your My Blue Hen Home portal.


When the SRAR is complete and linked to your UD application, it should appear as received in your student portal within a few business days. All deadlines are considered met when SRAR is completed and submitted by the due date, no matter when we receive it.


For any changes to your senior-year schedule or to provide a senior-year grade update, please email us at

No. We will not review high school transcripts in lieu of the SRAR. However, you should obtain a transcript from your school counselor so you can complete the SRAR with the most accurate information. 


If offered admission, students who choose to enroll will be required to submit a final high school transcript with a graduation date listed; transcripts with anticipated graduation dates will not be accepted. The deadline for submitting a final high school transcript is July 15.

Please be sure that your Self-Reported Academic Record, including any standardized test scores provided, is accurate. Errors in presentation of grades or standardized test scores may affect admission status and eligibility for merit awards. Validation of self-reported grades and scores occurs after official transcripts and test scores are received, later in the admissions process. If official grades and scores are different from what you reported, the University reserves the ability to change your admission status and merit awards.
