Self-Reported Academic Record
What is the SRAR?
The Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) allows students to self-report courses and grades that have been attempted, or will be attempted, for high school credit. The SRAR replaces the high school transcript used by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions during the initial review process. Since accuracy is critical, you are advised to have a copy of your high school transcript available to use as a reference when you complete your SRAR.
The SRAR is separate from the admissions application and is created through your RaiderConnect account.
Who is required to submit the SRAR?
Beginning with Summer 2022 applications, the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) is a required item for first-time in college students, and your application file will remain incomplete until it is completed.
All first time in college 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 record 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).
- Applicants who have already graduated from high school must submit their official final high school transcript.
How do I complete the SRAR?
The SRAR is completed separately from your admissions application. Follow the steps below:
Please note, your RaiderConnect account and SRAR account should be created with the same name and email address as it appears on your application.
Entering grades on the SRAR:
- Please enter your grades exactly as they appear on your transcript or official score report.
- Enter your official grades for all courses where you will receive high school credit.
- If your school gives term or semester grades, list each course with all term or semester grades.
- If your school does not provide term grades, enter the final grade as "full year". Please only enter a full year grade if term grades are not provided.
- 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 you 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.
Texas high school students:
- The process for Top 10% Assured Admission in the state of Texas requires Texas Tech to have an accurate diploma type. If you are a Texas high school student, please ensure that you enter the high school diploma type that you are pursuing, which should be available on your transcript.
Additional Frequently Asked Questions

- Your application will enter the holistic review process sooner and a decision will be provided in 2-4 weeks.
- If an SRAR is required for other colleges you are applying to, you can eliminate duplication of effort and simply link your SRAR.
