Auditing a Course

Permission to audit a course must be granted by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

The student must seek approval from the course instructor to audit a course. This approval should be shared with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

The course will appear on the student's schedule as though it has been scheduled for credit.

The course will appear on the student's transcript with the grading symbol "AU" if attendance was regular or "W" if the attendance was unsatisfactory.

No credit is earned, and the grade-point average is not affected.

Audit credits are charged at the normal per credit tuition rate.

Credits for a course being audited are not counted in determining the following:

  • enrollment status (full-time or part-time)
  • calculating semester standing
  • financial aid status
  • full-time status for international students for reporting to SEVIS (Student Exchange Visitor Information System) under federal requirements.
