Auditors are students who attend classes and participate in discussions but do not submit papers or examinations for a regular letter grade. Although academic credit is not earned and therefore may not be used to complete degree requirements, audits are recorded on the student's transcript. The grade on the transcript is AU. The University's attendance policy applies to auditors; however, unlike a credit-earning student, an auditor does not have a claim on the time of the instructor for the purpose of critiquing or evaluating the auditor's work. Department chairs, in conjunction with individual faculty members, determine which courses are available and appropriate to be taken as audits.
You may register to take a course on an audit basis up until the deadline for adding classes each term. This also is the last day you may change from credit to audit status, or vice versa, with any appropriate changes in tuition applied. Audit registration and all changes between credit and audit status must be processed through the Registrar's Office, not online.
You are charged at a rate of 25 percent of tuition for auditing a course during the regular academic year.
