3.6.4 Zero-Credit Courses

Non-credit or zero-credit courses (for example, ENGL 144 and ENGL 149) do not fulfill any requirement towards a credential.

Students in zero-credit courses receive the same tutorial support and have access to all other services provided to AU students. They pay the same fees as they would for a three-credit course (minus the Students' Union and Alumni fees). Course extension regulations also apply to zero-credit individualized study courses.


Information effective Sept. 1, 2017 to Aug. 31, 2018.
