Self-Reported Academic Record

How-To Use Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR)

Thank you for applying to NIU. The next step is to get us your ACT (or SAT) score and high school transcript information. You have two options. One is to use our self-reported tool! The other is to go to your high school counselor and request your high school transcript and ACT score be sent to us.

NIU is using a new tool for self-reporting transcripts and standardized test score information.  You will need the following information to self-report:

  1. Your high school classes and grades (you can use an unofficial transcript, an online transcript, or your report cards)
  2. Your ACT or SAT scores (ACT composite, Math, Reading, Science Reasoning, and Writing)
  3. Your Z-ID from NIU (if you haven’t already used it). Go to to lookup your information.

You just need to log into MyNIU and access your self-service page. Go to and login with your Z-ID and password. For detailed instructions on how to self-report, please click here.  Once you are able to self-report and we receive your SRAR, we will review your application and get a decision out to you as quickly as possible (usually within one week).

All offers of admission are conditional. Students using SRAR and choosing to enroll at NIU will be required to request that their high school submit an official transcript including all courses, final grades, and confirmation of graduation on or before July 15. The official transcript must match the SRAR.

Please note, all sections must be completed prior to saving.  Once you have saved your information, you are not able to make changes or additions to what you have self-reported.  Any subsequent changes, additions or corrections will require submission of an official high school transcript.  If you are admitted and decide to enroll, you will be required to submit an official high school transcript that will be compared against what you have self-reported.

Thank you for using this new process. 

Go Huskies!
