Athabasca University

Bow Valley College

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.

AU’s 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. To register for courses, please print and fill out the General Application Form and the Course Registration Form:
