Admission requirements

We believe in education and learning opportunities for everyone. That’s why Athabasca University programs’ are made to work for our students regardless of level of experience, previous grades or degrees. It’s our priority to ensure that our post-secondary online education is accessible and flexible, so our low requirements policy accept undergraduate students to the program as long as they pass the minimum age restriction of 16 years of age.

From arts, to business, to tech, to nursing and many more: all of our over 850 courses are available to our students even without being enrolled in an AU undergraduate or graduate program. All of Athabasca University’s minimum requirements listed here apply to both Canadian and international candidates.
