Is there a time limit on courses that may be transferred from another institution?

In general, courses are considered for transfer credit regardless of when they were completed, with the following exceptions:

  • Athabasca University will not award transfer credit for nursing courses, administrative studies courses, information systems courses, or science courses taken more than ten years ago.
  • Athabasca University will not grant transfer credit for computer science courses or programs, taken more than five years ago.
