Auditing a Course

Students auditing a course are expected to attend class regularly, but are not required to complete assignments, quizzes, examinations and other assigned work and do not receive academic credit, though the course is noted on their transcript. Students who register as auditors pay full course tuition, but the course cannot be counted towards minimum credit requirements for financial aid.

Students enrolled for credit who wish to change to auditor status must submit official add-drop forms (dropping the credit class while adding it for audit) before the appropriate deadline.
