On-site learning collaborations are changing in the coming months
After a year-long study of its partnership programs at Alberta colleges, Athabasca University has decided to align its college course delivery practices with the university’s regular online delivery model. These changes will be phased in over the coming year. Effective April 30, 2017, we will be discontinuing on-site classroom courses on college campuses.
If you attend one of the following institutions you will be affected.
- Grande Prairie Regional College »
- Lakeland College (Lloydminster) »
- Medicine Hat College »
- Aurora College (Northwest Territories) »
Our number one priority is to ensure our students are supported during this transition.
What does this change mean for you?
Over the coming year (fall semester 2016 and winter semester 2017), you can continue to take AU courses as classroom courses at your college campus.
As of May 1, 2017, you can continue to complete any remaining courses in your AU program while remaining in your home community through our individualized online courses. By transitioning to online study, you will gain a number of additional benefits:
- Choose from over 900 courses available all the time.
- Start a course on the first day of any month.
- Study whenever and wherever you want: total flexibility.
- Complete each course and your AU program at your own pace.
