AUSU Questions and Answers

“How do I get more involved as an AU student?” 

Although Athabasca University is an online university, there are still lots of ways to get involved and connect with other students! Here are a few suggestions:
  • Download the AU Student Mobile App for free courtesy of AUSU. The app has a very active campus chat community, as well as quick access to resources, discounts, and relevant links for AU students. Get the app online here.

We are currently accepting applications until MIDNIGHT TODAY, August 23, for the 2019-2020 Student Advisory Committee – find out more online here.
