English Language Proficiency

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.

Non-Program Students

The GD:HRM program will accept a limited number of non-program students. Non-program students will be permitted to register in courses on a first-come, first-served basis, space permitting. Those courses taken as a non-program student may be directly applied toward the program diploma requirements, if and when the student chooses to enrol in the program. Athabasca University is, however, under no obligation to admit non-program students into the GD:HRM program.

To apply as a non-program student and for more information, visit the non-program page on the HRM website.
