program for some union education programs. A student with a Labour

nine credits. Students who have completed the Canadian Auto Workers
Paid Educational Leave course may be eligible to receive three credits.
And students who have completed the Canadian Union of Postal Workers'
Union Education Program may be eligible to receive six credits.
Credit is also granted for other union education programs and for
other forms of prior learning.
Contact Athabasca University for details. Many unions,
and some employers, will reimburse you for the cost of university
fees. Discuss this with your
union representative or employer.
