What is the Academic Performance Evaluation (APE)?

  • The Academic Performance Evaluation (APE) is the annual assessment of the student’s status in their degree.
  • This evaluation is based on the student’s Overall CGPA, Major CGPA, and where appropriate, Core CGPA. Please see the Undergraduate Calendar (Section 3.2, Regulation 3.2.6) for further information.
  • In addition to the above, a number of specialty programs specify additional requirements that must be fulfilled. Please see the Undergraduate Calendar (Section 3.2, Regulation 3.2.7) for further information.
  • The possible outcomes of the APE are Good Standing, Academic Warning, Suspension, Continue in Alternate, Continue in General, Dismissed from Program, or Debarment.
  • APE decisions are posted in June and can be viewed in Carleton Central under the “Student Records” heading in the section “myProgress (APE: Academic Performance Evaluation)”.

When does the Academic Performance Evaluation (APE) occur?

  • Degree students are evaluated at the end of the first winter term after they complete 4.0 credits at Carleton University (including University of Ottawa exchange courses). Subsequent evaluations then occur at the end of each winter term following the completion of 4.0 additional credits. More information for degree students can be found in the Undergraduate Calendar (Section 3.2)
  • Special Students are evaluated at the same time as degree students, but receive evaluations when the student has completed 2.0 credits since their most recent admission to Special Studies. Subsequent evaluations occur after completion of 2.0 additional credits. More information for Special Students can be found in the Undergraduate Calendar (Section 6.6).
