Undergraduate Certificate Fees and Funding

The HRM Undergraduate Certificate Fees follow the general AU undergraduate fee schedule noted in the main Calendar. The links to the most significant fees are as follows:

Methods of Payment

You may pay your course registration fees in Canadian dollars by cheque, money order, or authorize fees to be charged to your Visa, MasterCard, or American Express card. Interac is available at the offices at Athabasca University - Central, Athabasca University - Calgary, and Athabasca University - Edmonton. Post-dated cheques are not accepted.

Returning students paying by cheque should ensure that their student ID number is clearly written on the cheque. Cash may be paid in person; do not send cash in the mail.

When submitting fees by Visa, MasterCard or American Express, indicate the specific fee being paid (e.g., admission fee, evaluation fee, etc.). A credit card payment processing form is included with the online Undergraduate General Application Form and the Undergraduate Course Registration Form. If you make an error when determining the amount, Athabasca University will automatically charge the correct fee to your credit card.

To avoid duplication of charges or processing do not mail original documentation after you have registered by fax, and do not fax requests that have already been submitted using the University's online system. Regardless of the registration method used, full payment must accompany all application forms. Requests with insufficient fees cannot be processed until full payment is received.

Sample Tuition Cost for the HRM Undergraduate Certificate Program (Based on September 2010 Fees)

The typical 2010 cost for a Canadian resident living in Alberta, who is not a senior, and who takes all of the HRM program courses from Athabasca University (without extensions), would be as follows:

Program application fee
$ 100.00
Core course tuition (8 three-credit courses at $646 each)
$ 5168.00
Practicum course tuition (1 six-credit course at $1120)
$ 1120.00
   
Sample Total
$ 6,388.00

Letter of Verification of Payment/Receipt

Athabasca University provides a "Letter of Verification," which serves as a receipt or "proof of payment." You may request this letter from the AU Finance Department by contacting the Accounts Receivable Assistant.

Send an email message identifying what transactions you wish to be included on the letter (i.e., tuition for HERM 3XX) along with your AU student ID number. The Letter of Verification will be sent to you by email.
