Admission Requirements

Undergraduate admissions

To enter Athabasca University as an undergraduate student, you must be 16 or older. No other conditions apply, though certain programs require prior education to enrol.

You don’t need to enrol in an AU program to take our courses.

Graduate admissions

You must have an undergraduate degree to apply for most graduate programs. Doctorate programs require a master’s degree.

You can take some graduate courses without being admitted to the program if you meet the non-program student requirements for that program. Requirements for graduate programs are listed on each program’s website.
