Annual Progress Report

The Annual Progress Report (APR) is a tool for you and your supervisor to monitor your progress. Each year, you must complete the APR in May (most programs) to review your past work and set goals for the future year.

What to expect

If you are registered during the winter term, you will receive an email prompt in May to remind you to complete your APR report. Consult with your program for report submission deadlines. Topics covered include:

  • courses completed and grades received
  • scholarships
  • research progress
  • publications and conferences
  • academic plans for the upcoming year

What happens after you submit the report

Supervisors and Graduate Program Directors will review and evaluate reports submitted by their students. 

The APR is not intended to replace regular meetings and feedback from your Supervisor and Committee but rather to provide a structured opportunity for assessment of your academic progress together with planning for the next year.

Any unsatisfactory evaluations will be reviewed by an Associate Dean in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and an action plan to help you get back on track will be agreed upon.
