|Admissions Policy |
Anyone 16 years of age or older is eligible for admission to Athabasca University, regardless of previous educational experience, with or without a high school diploma.
Students may not enrol in an Athabasca University undergraduate or graduate program while they are enrolled in a program at another post-secondary institution.
Those students may take courses as unclassified students until they have either completed or withdrawn from the other program.
Past academic performance may restrict you from enrolling in specific undergraduate programs such as the Bachelor of Professional Arts, Bachelor of Nursing, or Bachelor of Commerce degree programs. Specific enrolment requirements are indicated on the program.
Time to Complete a Degree
Most of Athabasca University's undergraduate degree programs are open-ended, meaning there is no time limit for the completion of an undergraduate degree. Students should remain active in their program.
Students complete the program regulations in effect at the time of their enrolment.
