Did You Know? – AU Holiday Exam Procedures

If you have undergraduate courses ending December 31, 2011, you’ll want to note the University’s special holiday exam procedures?and order your final examinations as soon as possible.

If your course contract date is December 31, you must submit your exam requests before the University closes for the holidays. Athabasca University will be closed from December 23, 2011, at 5 pm MST until January 3, 2012, at 8:30 am MST. No examinations will be shipped during that period.

Exam requests received after the close of business on December 23 will be treated as Late Examination Requests, and the Late Examination Request Fee will be assessed.

Due to the holiday postal rush, the University may not be able to guarantee specific write dates. Additionally, exam requests received after December 20 may not be processed until the University reopens in January.

However, if you submit your exam request before the holiday closure, you will have until January 15, 2012, to take your exam. Note that this is not a course extension; all other course components, including essays, projects, and quizzes, are due by the December 31 course contract date.
