Starting 2010, Stony Brook University and Binghamton University join other schools-
including California State Schools and Rutgers-that are strongly encouraging or requiring
freshman applicants to self-report their high school records online using STARS (Self-
Reported Testing and Academic Record System)

SUNY is encouraging students to go green by using STARS. It will benefit by saving paper,
trees, labor, postage, and energy costs. Students can easily submit their STARS record by
following the steps below. Since all STARS information is verified by the college in which
the student enrolls, there is no concern regarding record accuracy.




SELF-REPORTED TESTING AND ACADEMIC RECORD SYSTEM
PROCEDURES

STUDENTS SHOULD:

1. See how it works at:
   http://selfreported transcript.com/howitworks

2. Obtain a copy of their unofficial high school transcript from your guidance office which
   will be mailed to you in August of your senior year.

3. Go to http://selfreportedtranscript.com and refer to their unofficial transcript to complete
   the STARS form, entering all information exactly as it appears on their transcript.

4. Using your Stony Brook ID or Binghamton ID (sent with Stony Brook’s and
   Binghamton’s application acknowledgment), submit your STARS record to Stony Brook,
   and Binghamton.

STONY BROOK AND BINGHAMTON WILL:

1. Send the student immediate electronic confirmation that his or her STARS record
   has been received and posted to Counselors’ Tracking Center. If a student does not
   receive this confirmation, Stony Brook and Binghamton did not receive his or her
   STARS record.

2. Verify the accuracy of the STARS transcript by comparing it to the official final
   transcript for enrolling students only. If misrepresentations occur, Stony Brook and
   Binghamton reserves the right to rescind the offer of admission.
