Online Course Evaluations

AUSU recently launched online course evaluations for all undergraduate AU courses. We encourage all AU students to fill out evaluations for any courses taken in the past year. The more feedback we receive, the more useful this resource becomes!

Please note, these evaluations are separate from the ones sent out by AU. The reviews are available anytime, even after your courses has ended. You can also see the results online for any completed course evaluations!

AUSU will track the reviews received and discuss them with AU when there is a notable trend in a course.
