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.

3.2.1 Block Transfer Credit/College Diploma

AU accepts many college diplomas and other credentials as blocks of transfer credit toward AU programs. In these cases, the student’s transcript is reviewed, and transfer credit is awarded as a block of credit rather than on a course-by-course basis.

Block transfer arrangements are most often associated with specific programs and may not be applicable to all AU credentials. If a decision has not been previously made, your prior education will be assessed on an individual basis.
