Admission, Registration and Evaluation

5.3 Evaluations and Transfer Credit

Alberta Advanced Education has mandated Athabasca University to act as a credit coordinating body. In general, credit courses completed at other accredited degree-granting institutions will be considered for transfer credit to Athabasca University programs on a course-by-course basis.

University transfer courses taken at colleges will generally be considered for transfer credit as though they were university courses. Applications to Athabasca University are treated individually according to the relevant credential program regulations and are dependant on the year the college program and/or individual courses were completed, the course selection within the diploma, and other variables. Individual credit may vary.

If you are presenting courses taken previously at other post-secondary institutions to be evaluated for credit towards an Athabasca University credential, official transcripts must be mailed directly from the issuing institution to Athabasca University. Detailed course descriptions may also be required.

If you are a new student and you wish to transfer credit to an Athabasca University program, you must enrol in a specific program by completing the Undergraduate General Application Form, and submit the one-time, non-refundable application fee.

If you are a continuing student, log in to my AU and complete and submit the online Change of Program Form.

Non-Canadian students who will be presenting international credentials for possible transfer credit to an Athabasca University program, refer to Section 5.1.6.
