Auditing a Course

Updated/Effective:  July 1, 2013

Occasionally, a student may wish to attend a course without earning credit (for example, to refresh course knowledge).  This arrangement is called “auditing” a course. Audited courses are listed on a transcript with the grade AU (audit) and no credits earned. Audited courses incur regular tuition fees; however, audits are not considered part of a course load for academic or financial aid purposes, which means that students cannot count audited credits toward a full-time student status, or receive financial aid for an audited class. .

A student needs the course instructor’s permission to audit a course. Students who want to audit a course must complete a Request to Audit Course Form, have it signed by the course instructor, and submit it to the Office of the Registrar during the drop/add period specified on the academic calendar.  Audits cannot be changed to a regular enrollment after the drop/add period noted on the academic calendar. 

Students who choose an audit option are expected to attend the audited class and complete all course requirements (with the exclusion of the tests).  If the students do not meet attendance requirements for the course, they earn the grade of WN (withdrawn for non-attendance).  Once a WN grade is issued, the student may no longer attend or participate in the class.  AU and WN grades do not affect the term and cumulative grade point averages.
