Admission

3.1.5 Admission Classifications

3.1.5.1 Active Students

Active students are those who are currently registered in an AU course or who have completed or withdrawn from an AU course within the last 12 months. The 12-month period is based on the most recent course contract date, course completion date, or the date of withdrawal from an AU course.

Students who complete courses on a Letter of Permission from AU also retain their active status.

Active students must log in to myAU where they have access to personal information such as library accounts, assignment marks, and course grades, or take care of administrative matters such as registering for courses, booking examinations, or applying for extensions.

Changing Programs/Status

Active students who wish to change their enrolment from the unclassified (non-program/visiting) status to an undergraduate program, or change from one undergraduate program to another undergraduate program, must log in to myAU and select “Change Your Program” found under “Manage Your Program” in the Student Record section of myAU.

If you are an inactive student, you will be required to reactivate your file and then complete the “Change Your Program” form. The form will ask if you require an evaluation of previous post-secondary studies. A fee is required for this service if it wasn’t submitted previously.

You are required to fulfill the program regulations in effect at the time of your enrolment. Course work completed previously will be assessed toward the new credential.

3.1.5.2 Inactive Students

Inactive students are those who have not registered in an AU course within 12 months of the most recent course contract end date or the date of withdrawal from their last AU course.

If you are a returning student with an inactive AU account, you need to log into myAU and reactivate your active status by selecting “Change your Program” found under “Manage Your Program” under the Student Record section of myAU.

To re-enrol and before you continue to take courses, you must complete and submit a new Undergraduate General Application Form. Access myAU and follow the reactivation procedure.

You are required to fulfill the program regulations in effect at the time of your re-enrolment. You will also require a new evaluation of your previous post-secondary course work. A fee is required for this service if it wasn’t submitted previously.
