It doesn't work that way (for any of the Big3); what you're talking about is called credit laundering.  TESU doesn't take a degree as a block transfer, they take credits individually and from their original source only.
Thank you for clarifying. I thought so. Still good to know that I can get the bachelor degree now from AU without any additional work!

Only if they evaluate your existing credits as meeting their requirements.  It is not as simple as having 90 traditionally graded credits (it's not an automatic degree based on # of credits earned); which is why you would need to apply and have your transcripts evaluated by them.
I have 160 credits. Mostly Upper Level and Graduate Level. Of course I would have to see what they accept but are they very picky with that? All my credits are from an accredited university in Germany. 

AU let’s me transfer credits and doesn’t have a residency requirement for the 3 year program. From what I have read, I need to fulfill the requirement of upper level classes, correct?

It is likely, but I'm not familiar with how they equate international credits.  The OP has US credits (and AU is US RA), so what it is easier for us to gauge as to what to expect for the evaluation (and again, we're just making an educated guess); Athabasca will have the final say.

It's not just about what credits they accept, it's about having taken the right classes. For example, if they require Oral Communication (no idea if they do or not, this is just an example), you'll have to have taken an Oral Communication class. Ditto for any other class they require. It's not just about how many classes they'll take, but about how your classes match up with their requirements.
