Your Question: How long does it take to complete a course?

Our Response: How long does it take to complete a course?


Students taking individualized study course are given six months to complete three- and four-credit course and twelve months to complete six-credit courses. All assignments, quizzes and exams are required to be completed within the course contract time.

Students taking individualized study courses are eligible for three two-month extensions, as explained in AU's Course Extension Policy.

Generally, group study courses follow a traditional semester system; for example, courses which begin in September will end in December. Grouped-study courses are usually 13 weeks (three-credit courses) or 26 weeks (six-credit courses). Course extensions are not allowed.

If you are a funded student, other timeframes might apply. For more information, email a Financial Aid Advisor in the Financial Aid unit of the Office of the Registrar at sfa@athabascau.ca or contact the Information Centre.
