As part of the move to increase options for students to purchase or acquire texts and materials for AU courses, we are transitioning to a new fee model. While the full implementation of a myAU bookstore will be in place later next year, some students will see an immediate benefit.
On December 15, Athabasca University approved a new student learning resource fee of $130 (a $50 reduction per course) for undergraduate courses that have no third-party, paid learning resources. Impacted students who preregistered in these specific courses, with start dates of February or later, will receive a $50 refund in the coming weeks. Students in courses with third-party, paid learning resources will not experience any changes to service or fees and will continue to pay the existing $180 until the myAU bookstore is launched.
Graduate learning resource fees are not impacted by this change.
Our goal is to ensure a seamless transition and exceptional learning experience. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
