How do I change my program or student status? : Current Student Program

You can change the type of student you are from a program student to a non-program student or from a non-program student to a program student. You can also change from one program to another.

Note that you cannot change your student type or your program more than once in any one-month period.

If you want to change your student type, log in to the myAU portal, and choose the Change Program option on the left menu bar.

Before changing your program please contact an Advisor to discuss any implications this may have on your program standing. An advisor can help with any questions that you have about the fit of your transfer credit and/or completed courses into your new program. Once you have talked with an advisor, log in to the myAU portal, and choose the Change Program option on the left menu bar.

There is no fee for changing your student type or for changing your program at AU.
