Becoming an Athabasca University student is easy – their open admission policy means if you’re 16 or older, you will be accepted as an undergraduate student. They also offer postgraduate and professional courses.

For undergraduate programs, be sure to review your program’s regulations carefully so you can meet all the necessary requirements in time for your application deadline.
Requirements for graduate programs are listed on each graduate program’s website. Because program regulations can change, students are required to complete the program regulations in effect at the time of their enrolment. Students who are admitted to a program that has any entrance requirements for admission will follow the degree regulations in effect upon completion of the transfer credit evaluation.
You must have an undergraduate degree to apply for most graduate programs. Doctorate programs require a master’s degree. You can take some graduate courses without being admitted to the program if you meet the non-program student requirements for that program.
How to Apply
The application process is a little different depending on what level you wish to study(undergraduate or graduate), where you live, and if you want to take a full program or just some courses.
