Audit Options (no credit)
Students who register as auditors are expected to attend class
regularly but are not obligated to take tests or comply with any other
course requirements. The audit option is not allowed in computer,
computer based, laboratory, applied art, applied music, graphics,
studio television, writing, physical education activity, independent
study, thesis or dissertation, or any off-campus courses. There
are two audit options available.
- Audit Declaration at Registration - Students who
declare an audit option at the time of registration by filing an Audit
Declaration are assessed tuition of $100 per credit plus fees.
Audit Declaration is restricted to open courses at in-person
registration sessions immediately prior to the beginning of a semester.
Students who file an Audit Declaration may not rescind that declaration
and switch to credit status. Auditors who withdraw from a course
for which they have filed an Audit Declaration will not receive any
refund. Within the add/drop period, auditors may drop a course
for which they have filed an Audit Declaration; they will receive a
refund of tuition only, not fees.
- Standard Audit Option - Students who wish to audit a class
may submit this request on a Course Adjustment Form available from
their adviser or from the Office of the Registrar. Auditors may
enroll for any course for which they are qualified. They may be
dropped from a course by the professor if their presence impedes normal
class progress. They may not change from audit to credit or
vice-versa after the fifth week of class or the first third of the
course meeting in Summer Session. Regular tuition and fees are
assessed for the standard audit option.
The designation of “AU” is noted on the transcript. An “AU” is
not used in determining class standing, eligibility or GPA.
