You may be eligible for a refund of course fees paid, less a withdrawal processing fee, if you withdraw from a grouped study course prior to and up to 15 days after the course contract start date.

The Undergraduate Course Withdrawal and Refund Policy – Grouped Study states the criteria for a refund of course fees, less a withdrawal processing fee. Complete and submit the Course Withdrawal Request Form (Grouped Study) in person, by mail to Athabasca University's Office of the Registrar, to the designated area of the facility where the grouped study course is being offered, or by fax (780.675.6174), or scanned and emailed. The date of withdrawal will be the postmark on the envelope, or if the form is hand-delivered or faxed (780.675.6174), the University date stamp.

Refunds are processed within approximately 45 days of AU's receipt of the grouped study course withdrawal request. Your refund will be processed according to your method of payment, e.g., your credit card account will be credited, a cheque will be forwarded to your current mailing address, etc.
