Academic Progress Report (APR)

About the APR

What is the APR?

The Academic Progress Report (APR) is an interactive course mapping tool designed to help current undergraduate students understand their degree and program requirements, as well as provide a starting place for making informed decisions about their academic program. 

With the APR, you can ...

  • Review program and degree requirements
  • Assess what you have completed so far
  • Evaluate how your courses could transfer to a different program—to explore this option you'll need to make an appointment with your advisor

The APR does not replace the following:

  • Individual Academic Planning – e.g., Course Planning, Degree Planning done in consultation with an Academic Advisor
  • Graduation Checks done in consultation with an Academic Advisor

Exceptions to the APR

Some programs are currently not available through the APR:

  • post baccalaureate diplomas
  • graduate programs
  • second degrees
  • programs prior to Fall 2006

Frequently asked questions

Can I just rely on the APR without consulting an Academic Advisor throughout my Undergraduate career?

No, it is recommended that you consult your Academic Advisor.

Why does a new course not appear in the course list?

A New course will not appear in the course list until first day of the term. 

For example, 

  • If a new course is effective Spring 2018, it will appear in the course list starting on Jan 1, 2018. 
  • If a new course is effective Summer 2018, it will appear in the course list starting on May 1, 2018.
  • If a new course is effective Fall 2018, it will appear in the course list starting on Sept 1, 2018.

What should I do if there is a mismatch of the program requirements between the APR and Academic Calendar?

Program requirements in the APR should always match with Academic Calendar. If you notice a mismatch, please consult your Academic Advisor or email to aprusers@sfu.ca.

Who are the APR and My Planner for?

The APR is only for:

  • Current undergraduate students admitted from Fall 2006 onwards
  • Students declared in a program (for example, Political Science Major) or plan (for example, Bachelor of General Studies - Education)

My Planner, on the other hand, works for all students, including second degree, post baccalaureate, and grad programs. Please see an academic advisor for assistance if any of the above situations applies to you.
