Athabasca University 2017-2018 Exams Holiday Hours

Reminder - request your December exams early!

This is a courtesy reminder to all students with a course contract end date of December 31, 2017. Athabasca University will be closed for the holidays at the end of business on Friday December 22nd, 2017 and will reopen on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2017.

If your course is ending on December 31, we encourage you to review important exam request deadline information, and the following calendar information on the AU holiday closure.

6.1.2.8 Holiday Closures and Examinations

Examinations are not shipped during the last week in December when the University is closed.

Examination requests that are received prior to the University closure for courses with a course contract end date of December 31 are allowed additional time to write their examinations without being charged the Late Exam Fee. Exams requested prior to the University closure for courses with a contract end date of December 31 must be completed no later than January 15 of the following year.

This additional time does not apply to other course work such as assignments and quizzes, which must be completed on or before the December 31 course contract end date.

Any examination requests received after the university closure, but prior to the course contract end date of December 31 will be processed as a Late Examination Request.

Due to holiday volumes, we encourage you to allow additional time for your examination request to be processed. You also have the option to request your paper based exams to be sent by courier for an additional fee. Payment of a late exam request fee does not guarantee on-time delivery.

If you have any questions, or require any assistance in making your exam request, please contact the Information Centre at 1-800-788-9041.

We wish you success in your studies!
