A student who wishes to take a few courses to begin a career in architecture, or to be considered for promotion, or are simply interested in the topic and do not wish to register in the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Architecture (PBDA), may register as non-program students. Students wishing to enroll in the PBDA program as a non-program student must hold a baccalaureate degree from a recognized post-secondary education institution. All persons applying for non-program status will be required to submit confirmation of successful completion of an undergraduate degree. Applicants may be asked to submit a resumé in support of their non-program application. Students are accepted into the PBDA program at the discretion of Athabasca University. Some courses may have limited enrolments.
All materials for non-program student registration (including the application form and fees) must be completed in full and received one month prior to the course start date.
Non-program students may take up to two PBDA courses in total.
