Kelsey expresses concern that no arrangements have been made for an alternative assessment for a course that ended back in May; the student union prez jumps in with an offer to help.  Monica inquires about AU’s exam-rescheduling fee and is relieved to learn it is currently being waived.  Rabiea wonders why there’s no option to submit an assignment; turns out the course start date isn’t until September 1 so there’s limited access until then.

Other posts include how to select program courses, AUSU student advisory committee, AU’s email response time, and tracking parcels of textbooks.


A new-student question about student-tutor interaction reveals some common misperceptions about AU’s study model.  Meanwhile, a student only ten courses from graduating looks for an easy slide of no-exam courses to wrap that parchment up by March 2021.
