In the 2017-18 admissions cycle, students completing the Common App can expect to see a new feature that integrates the self-reporting of courses and grades.
There are seven colleges directing students to complete this section while still requiring, however, submission of a formal transcript from the high school.
Students must have access to their transcripts in order to provide requested information which includes: course name and level; grading period; credit hours; letter or numerical grade received.
As of now, the list of seven schools requesting self-reporting of courses and grades includes:
The George Washington University
New York School of Career & Applied Studies - Tuoro College and University System
The Ohio State University
The University of Southern California
West Virginia University
