Introduction to Exams : Prospective Students - Program

Most AU courses at AU have a final exam, and some also have a mid-term exam. Unlike a quiz or test that may be part of the course work, exams are written in a supervised environment and require an exam invigilator. The process for requesting and writing an exam is discussed in more detail in the pages that follow.

Note that if you have a disability, you may qualify for accommodations related to your exam needs. Please contact our Access to Students with Disabilities unit for assistance. They can be reached by email at asd@athabascau.ca or by phone at 1-800-788-9041, extension 3424.
