Auditing Courses

 

Auditing a Course

Students may register to audit courses (meaning they take courses for no credit and no grade; only a "U" appears on the transcript) on a space available basis only, beginning with the first day of classes each semester.  Payment is the same as for students taking the courses for credit except in the case of senior citizens. The approval of the Registrar and instructor are required for an audit status.

Senior citizens, sixty years of age or older, may register to audit courses on a space available basis, beginning with the first day of classes each semester. There is no auditing charge for senior citizens.

NOTE:  Audit credits do not count toward financial aid eligibility.

Students may not normally change from credit to audit or audit to credit after the third week of classes (or the 50% refund deadline in summer).

A.      REGULAR AUDIT

1. Students must first meet with the Secretary to the Registrar to determine if space is available in the desired class for an auditor.

2. The student: student proceeds to register as an auditor and pays the additional tuition and fees. If a student is already full-time, no additional tuition is owed, just course fees. The student will then be given the Audit Permission Form to take to the instructor for signature.

3. The student must return the signed Audit Permission Form to the Registrar for final approval and signature.

4. A student who is already registered as a regular registrant may change to audit status within the first three weeks by obtaining the Audit Permission Form to take to the instructor.

B.      SENIOR CITIZEN AUDIT

1. Senior citizens must meet with or telephone the Secretary to the Registrar on the first day of classes, and if space is available, register for the class as an auditor.

2. The student will be given a copy of his/her schedule and a card to present to the instructor and to the Security Office for a parking sticker.
