Review, Promotion, and Tenure

The Review, Promotion, and Tenure (RPT) module will be used for multiple types of academic personnel actions and reviews, including promotion and/or tenure; promotion and/or continuing status; fixed-term promotion; multi-year appointment renewal; sabbatical requests and reports; leaves of absence and/or extensions; probationary reviews; and annual evaluations. 

RPT will be piloted in academic year 2021-2022 using two processes: annual evaluations and probationary reviews. If your college is interested in joining the RPT pilot for one or both processes, please complete this form and a member of the APARS team will contact you.
