An Academic Performance Evaluation (APE) is run annually at the end of every winter term through the Registrar’s Office. It is an assessment tool the University uses to determine whether students are achieving the grades required to remain in their degree program.

The APE decision plays an important role in your academic future and allows you to know if you are on the right track towards graduation.

In order to be eligible for graduation, students must:

  • Complete their degree requirements (15.0 or 20.0 credits depending on the degree) AND
  • Attain the minimum CGPAs to demonstrate successful completion of coursework

What are the different APE decisions?

The outcome from past Academic Performance Evaluations is indicated at the top left of your audit.

You will only receive an APE decision if you have attempted to complete 4.0 or more credits since your last APE evaluation.

The APE decision is based on your current CGPA, as it compares to your programs minimum CGPA requirements. Here are a few positive or neutral APE decisions:

If you do not meet the minimum CGPA requirements, your APE decision will have a negative outcome. This means that you may need to make some changes to your academic plans. Depending on your degree program, you will receive one of the following negative academic standings.
