Athabasca University and the Master of Arts – Interdisciplinary Studies program have a number of official policies regarding withdrawal from or extension of courses, changing of study plans/focus areas, transfer of credits, letters of permission and other common requests or procedures. It is very important that students are aware of these policies and refer to them when making important decisions regarding their courses or academic program, as missed deadlines or non-compliance with policies can affect academic records, have financial costs or disrupt a planned course of study.
To learn more about these policies, select a policy from the list below or the Policies submenu in the main navigation area on the left.
If you have questions about any of the policies, or about the application to a specific situation, please contact the MA-IS program office.
