Academic Progress Report (APR) for Faculty/Staff

What is the Academic Progress Report (APR)? 

The APR is an individualized report that reflects a student’s progress toward completing a declared program of study.  The APR is an important tool to help students plan and meet program of study academic requirements for graduation.  Final responsibility for completing their program of study requirements rests with the student.   

Advantages of the Academic Progress Report (APR) 

  • Provides timely information of student progress towards completing academic requirements to assist faculty/staff in advising students. 

  • Allows advisors to submit academic requirement overrides to accommodate changes to an individual student’s academic requirements due to special circumstances. 

How to view a student’s Academic Progress Report (APR) 

APRs are available online through Workday 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Some updates to the APR may not be viewable until the nightly refresh of APRs.  Updates to a student’s record which immediately refresh a student’s APR to update include dropping a course, updating course grades, changes to the student’s program of study, and updating a student’s academic plan.  However, academic advisers are able to launch an individual student’s APR to reflect updated information if they are the assigned advisor.  Steps on how to launch a student’s APR can be found here: LINK  

If students are exploring a new program of study, the Evaluate Academic Requirements for Student task can be used to view an APR for additional or different programs of study (a "What If" APR).  Steps on how to use the Evaluate Academic Requirements task can be found here: LINK 

How will the APR list multiple majors/minors? 

Each of the student’s declared programs of study will appear at the top of the APR.  A progress wheel (or donut) will appear next to each of the declared programs showing the number of academic requirements the student has satisfied for the program.

Each program of study will have their own section on the APR which lists the academic requirements which must be satisfied for graduation.  

Who is responsible for meeting graduation requirements? 

APRs are intended to assist students in determining their academic progress at ISU. Every effort is made to ensure accuracy; however, final responsibility for meeting graduation requirements resides with the student. Students are encouraged to check with their advisors on a regular basis as they progress towards their degree.
