Student Resources

Congratulations on your decision to become an Athabasca University student. Let us show you what you need to know to succeed.

Taking courses

Find out exactly what you need to know about registering in, withdrawing from and extending a course – then learn about the exam process at AU.

Taking another university’s course for AU credit

You may be able to use courses from another university to fulfil an AU program requirement. You’ll need to get a letter of permission before you register in the course.

Once your course is complete, you must have the school send an official transcript to AU.


Check your grades online and learn about requesting transcripts.
