International students studying in the U.S.

If all of your high school coursework was completed in the U.S., you will enter your grades on the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). Official transcripts will be required if you receive and accept an offer of admission.

If you have U.S. and international schooling, please refer to the credentials page for your country to determine whether or not you can complete SRAR.
