How Distance Learning Works
Message from the President
Welcome to Athabasca University! We believe that life-long learning is the foundation of a knowledge based society. Life-long learning is no longer a luxury - it is a necessity. We strive to serve the individual needs of adult learners and to let their priorities drive ours. Athabasca University seeks to differentiate itself from other universities and colleges by assigning priority to the provision of high quality education and service to students and prospective students regardless of their location or life situation.
Our biggest commitment lies with you, the student, and we demonstrate that commitment by providing you with access to some of the finest distance learning programs available anywhere.
