Students can write their examinations at Athabasca University locations in Athabasca, Edmonton, or Calgary, Alberta. In addition, a Canada-wide Examination Invigilation Network has been established that is composed of many post-secondary institutions that are AU-approved invigilation centres.
Students living within 100 km of an established AU-approved invigilation centre are required to write their exam at that location.
Students living further than 100 km from an approved invigilation centre have the following options:
- You may write your exam at an accredited post-secondary institution such as a community college or a technical institute. If one is not available, you may write your examination at an educational institution such as a high school or library, provided it is approved by the Office of the Registrar.
- If you live outside Canada, you must write your exams at an accredited post-secondary institution, Canadian Embassy, or Canadian government office in the country where you reside. Exceptions must have prior approval from the Office of the Registrar.
- If your course has an online exam, you may be able to participate in the Virtual Invigilation Pilot Project. This project enables students to write an online exam in locations other than those stated above. For more information please check out ProctorU.
