Athabasca University

MacEwan University

After a year-long study of its partnership programs at Alberta colleges, Athabasca University has decided to align its course delivery practices with the university’s regular online delivery model. These changes will be phased in over the coming year.

Effective April 30, 2016, Athabasca University will be discontinuing on-site classroom courses at MacEwan University.

AU’s number one priority is to ensure our Bachelor of Professional Arts in Criminal Justice degree students are supported during this transition.

What does this change mean for you?
