The CFL and Athabasca University make a great team! Here at AU, we understand the challenges that pro athletes face as they work towards a university education (if you're busy working towards another Grey Cup, you don't have a lot of time).

...the same applies for the fans in the stands—a busy family life, a hectic work schedule and a deep commitment to the game we all love requires a great amount of flexibility! A large reality for many post-secondary students is that hectic schedules often run up against prohibitive class times and restrictive learning opportunities. But not at AU.

There’s a reason that 83 per cent of AU students work while they study for their degree, diploma or finish up a couple of courses!

With AU, the flexibility will allow you time to watch all of the CFL gridiron action. Enjoy the playoffs and the Grey Cup.
