Auditing Courses

Undergraduate students

Undergraduate students will be permitted to audit courses on a space-available basis and with permission of the instructor. Most courses with the exception of Allied Health, Education, Nursing and graduate Business are open to auditors unless otherwise indicated. Students must be matriculated and registered for credit in the specific graduate discipline in order to audit at the graduate-level. Registration for audits will take place on designated registration dates. Final verification of acceptance into the course will be made after the term begins. Full-time undergraduate students (12 or more credits) may audit any two additional courses to the maximum of 6 credits free of additional charges and exclusive of the summer session and intersession.

Part-time undergraduate and non-matriculated students

Part-time undergraduate and non-matriculated students may audit one course and will pay one-half the tuition and appropriate fees to audit a course, exclusive of the summer session and intersession. Students will be required to pay any special fee that may be attached to the course.

Non-matriculated students will pay one-half the tuition and appropriate fees to audit a course. Students will be required to pay any special fee that may be attached to the course.

Alumni auditors

The policy for alumni to audit is covered in the "Institutional Scholarships" section of the catalog under "Alumni Lifetime Scholarships."

Payment information

Payment for audited courses must be made in full. The deferred payment plan is not available for use for audited courses.

Refund information

A student withdrawing from a course that is being audited will be granted a refund for tuition only if applicable, in accordance with the refunds policy as stated in the college catalog. If the status of a student changes at any time during the semester, the policy that relates to the current status of the student will be adhered to (i.e., students dropping from full-time to part-time status will be required to follow the policy of a part-time student).

Policy on academic credit

At no time will credit be granted for an audited course. However, the student may repeat the course for credit during another semester. Any change from audit status to credit or vice versa may be made up to the last day for program change. Consult the Academic Calendar for actual dates.

Records of courses that have been audited are part of the student's academic record and appear with the academic coursework on the transcript. Transcripts will be issued upon written request and submission of appropriate fee. The grade of "AU" is assigned for audited courses.
