* This program was previously called Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Instructional Design (PBCID).
Applicants to the Graduate Certificate in Instructional Design (GCID) program must hold a baccalaureate degree (three or four years) from a recognized post-secondary education institution.
If the potential applicant does not have a degree, but believes that their education and experience is equivalent to an undergraduate degree, then it is the responsibility of the applicant to put forward this position in writing as part of the application process.
Some students may have completed graduate-level course work at other post-secondary institutions that is applicable to the GCID program.
After being admitted to the GCID program, students may request a review of such course work. A faculty committee will review the work to determine whether the student should be awarded advance standing or transfer credit in the GCID program.
See Course Regulations and Procedures for more information.
There are minimum English Language Proficiency Requirements allowed for admission to a graduate program at Athabasca University. It is the student's responsibility to ensure they meet the minimum requirements.
Information effective Sept. 1, 2020 to Aug. 31, 2021.
