Are there any costs for writing exams?
In general, exams are included in the cost of your course, with the following exceptions:
Many exam invigilators will charge a fee to invigilate student exams. Students may also be required to pay invigilation fees to the institution providing invigilation for their exam.
AU does not charge fees to invigilate exams scheduled during regular business hours at any of its three locations; however, some universities, colleges, and other institutions do charge an "external student" fee to supervise exams. Students are responsible for any expenses they incur for exam invigilation service.
More information about examination fees can be found in Section 5.6 of the Calendar.
