Deadline Extension for Website Outage

Pin It

A number of students encountered difficulties with their internet service providers this past weekend while trying to reach Athabasca University’s main webpage and other online services.

As a result, AU will be extending our undergraduate course extension and exam request deadlines from Sunday April 30, 2017 to Friday May 5, 2017. For students whose exam requests provide insufficient advance notice, as a result of their inability to make their request this past weekend, staff will be making individual accommodations as warranted.

We are working to have a temporary adjustment made to our online systems to facilitate the processing of these requests.

In the interim, students who wish to avail themselves of the extended deadline may complete and remit an Examination Request Form, the Course Extension Request Form, or the Course Withdrawal Request Form.
