AU student email account and free access to the Microsoft Office (O365)

October 06, 2017

Hello FHD students:

Recently, you should have received an email from Athabasca University's Associate Vice President, Student Services, advising that all students soon will be provided with an AU student email account and free access to the Microsoft Office (O365) suite of online productivity tools.

If you are in the NP, MC, PBDC, PMC or Post LPN BN program and/or currently have an FHD or GCAP email account, we wish to ensure a smooth transition to the new AU emails. To give you time to download any messages and content you wish to save, you will continue to have access to your Faculty of Health Disciplines email account until December 15, 2017.After this date, all email correspondence will be through your new AU email account and you will no longer be able to log into your FHD or GCAP email.

Please take this time to download and save important emails and content from your FHD and GCAP email accounts, because this content will not migrate to your new account.

We are trying to make this change as smooth as possible for you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with
