Auditing a course is the privilege of being present in class when space permits. No credit is awarded and no examinations are required. Attendance, participation in class, etc., are at the discretion of the instructor. A student must register officially for the course and pay regular tuition during the specified registration and schedule adjustment period.
Auditing a course does not fulfill any prerequisite requirements. Also, a student may audit a particular course only once. Under extreme circumstances, a student may request to audit a course a second time through the department chair with approval by the dean of curriculum programs, the vice president for instructional services, and the vice president for student services. Audits are reported on grade cards and transcripts as “AU” and do not affect earned credits or GPA.
Students who receive a Pell Grant should consult with someone in the Office of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs before auditing a course.
