Self-reported Student Academic Record (SSAR)

The Self-reported Student Academic Record allows you to enter, track, and submit your academic record electronically to participating colleges and universities. Connecting your SSAR to your UWF application record is a required step for Summer 2022 applicants forward. For detailed guidance, visit UWF's SSAR page.

How do I send my SSAR to UWF?

Once you submit your UWF application, you will receive an email with a link allowing you to connect your existing SSAR to your UWF application record or create your SSAR for the first time.

We recommend using an unofficial copy of your high school transcript to help you complete the SSAR. You must include all high school- and college-level courses, including dual enrollment, even if they were taken before high school.

How can I update my SSAR?

If you need to correct or update your SSAR, log in to the SSAR website with the email and password you used to create your original SSAR. After updating, be sure to click the Submit button at the bottom of the Review/Submit section of the SSAR.


Send Transcripts

Upon graduation, you must provide your official high school transcript with the date your diploma was conferred.

High School Transcript

Freshmen and transfer students with fewer than 30 college credit hours are required to send high school transcripts. Students with 30-59 college credit hours are not required to send high school transcripts.

Contact your high school records office to request that your high school transcript be sent to UWF Undergraduate Admissions. We also accept official high school transcripts that are faxed or emailed, but only if they are sent directly from the high school. They can fax us at 850.474.3360, email us at admissions@uwf.edu, or

Attention Florida Public High School Graduates: If sending transcripts through the state electronic system (FASTER or SPEEDE), your high school transcript DOES NOT include ACT/SAT test scores. Please contact ACT or SAT to have previous testing results sent to UWF.

College Transcripts

Contact the Records/Registrar's Office from all previously attended colleges/universities to request transcript(s) be sent to UWF Undergraduate Admissions. We can receive official transcripts electronically (Florida public institutions), email (admissions@uwf.edu), or:

Mail to:
UWF Undergraduate Admissions

Building 18
Pensacola, FL 32514

Receipt Time: Please allow five to seven business days for your transcript to be received to your application after you have submitted your formal request for your transcript to be sent to UWF.

Important Tips:
  • It is the responsibility of the applicant to request official transcripts be sent to UWF Undergraduate Admissions from every college and university attended.
  • Request that your current name and Social Security Number be added to the transcript if necessary.
  • Transcripts or academic records bearing the statement "Issued to Student," transcripts submitted by the applicant, or faxed transcripts are not considered official. All transcripts become the sole property of the University.

Send Test Scores

Freshmen and transfer students with fewer than 30 college credit hours are required to send ACT and/or SAT test scores. Students with 30-59 college credit hours are not required to send test scores.

Students need to contact ACT.org (ACT) and / or Collegeboard.com (SAT) directly and request all score results to be sent to UWF. All ACT test scores are sent to the Florida Board of Regents and not directly to UWF. UWF receives the test scores from this entity, so we are unable to access individual student scores from the Encoura Data Lab. Students must request their ACT scores be sent via the formal process.

UWF School Codes

  • ACT: 0771
  • SAT: 5833

Receipt Time for Previous Test Score Results: Please allow five to seven business days for your scores to be received to your application after you have submitted your formal request for your test scores to be sent to UWF.

Receipt Time for New Test Score Results: Please allow four to six weeks after your test date for new test score results to be received to your application and verify that UWF is on the list of schools to receive your scores when they are released.
