Post-secondary education in Canada is under the jurisdiction of provincial governments. Athabasca University receives funding from the Alberta Ministry of Advanced Education based on the number of students that reside in our province. Differential fees are charged to students that reside outside of Alberta (out of province fee). Students are requested to confirm their address and residency each time they register in a course.
Canadians traveling or residing outside of the country will also pay this differential fee. AU has no process to determine when a student living abroad may return to Canada.
Athabasca University is currently engaged in a tuition and fee review which may lead to changes to registration fees in the future.
