Academic Policies 2020-2021

Auditing Courses

A student may audit a class for no credit only with approval of the instructor. The student will need to complete an audit course form and return it to the Registrar’s Office. Auditing of a class is allowed on a space-available basis, and regular fees and enrollment procedures are required. Auditing students will not be permitted to take the final examination and no credit hours earned nor any indication of the level of performance will appear on the transcript. Audit enrollments do not fulfill requirements for load considerations by the Veterans Administration or financial aid. A student who completes an audited course will receive an “AU” grade.

Students auditing a course are expected to make a commitment to their education by attending classes regularly. If the auditing student fails to meet the regular attendance requirement as defined by the instructor, the instructor may drop/withdrawal the student according to the relevant academic policies. Students who initially enroll in a course for credit may be permitted to change their enrollment to audit during the first three days of the fall and spring semesters, and the first two days of a summer term. The appropriate form must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar during this time period. During the term that a course is being audited, the audit cannot be changed to credit. The student may enroll in the same course for credit at a later semester. However, all graded coursework must be completed during the semester that credit is earned.
