Auditing a Course

Here is a general overview of auditing a course:

  • When auditing courses, a student does not receive credit for the course. The cost for auditing a course is the same as enrolling for credit.
  • Students may be required by the academic department to meet all prerequisites for a course prior to granting permission to audit a class.
  • Those students auditing a course are not normally required to take quizzes or exams.
  • The instructor has the option of requesting a withdrawal from the course if a student's attendance is irregular or if the student does not complete the course work required by the instructor.
  • At the end of the semester, students will receive a grade of "AU" (audit) on their transcript.

How to Audit a Course

To audit a course, the student must first register for the course.  The student must have the  permission to audit a course form (PDF) filled out by the instructor and then return the form to the Student Service Center, 2201 C.B. Hedgcock by the ninth calendar day of a semester.
