Evaluations and Transfer Credit

Due to Covid-19, Athabasca University has temporarily changed some student processes. Please refer to the Covid Q&A page for any updates and current steps that may be different from our regular practices.

3.2.5 Course Registration While Waiting for Evaluation Completion

While you wait for your evaluation of previous education to be completed, you may register in courses. If your course duplicates course work already completed, you can only receive credit for one of the courses. AU cannot confirm any course will meet your credential regulations until your evaluation is complete.

If you register in a course and are subsequently given transfer credit for a similar course completed previously, you have the option of withdrawing from the course. Refer to Course Withdrawal – Individualized Study and Course Withdrawal – Grouped Study.

Course selection assistance may be obtained from an AU student advisor by submitting an Information Request Form.


Information effective Sept. 1, 2020 to Aug. 31, 2021.
