Auditing a Course
Students are permitted to register as auditors with the authorization of the Dean. However, not all courses are open to auditors. Auditors are not held responsible for the work expected of regular students, are not admitted to examinations, and receive no grade or credit for the course. Regular attendance at class is expected, however, and auditors are subject, the same as regular students, to being dropped from the course for excessive absences (in this event auditors receive a W).
A student who has previously enrolled as an auditor may not take the course for credit during any succeeding semester or summer term except by special permission of the Dean.
Charges for courses audited are usually one-half (50 percent) of the Spring per-credit hour tuition rate. See the Summer Sessions tuition schedule for charges for courses audited. Special courses, workshops, and institutes offered at a special flat-tuition charge are excluded from the auditor discount.
Students seeking to change from credit to audit status will be eligible for a tuition adjustment (if not otherwise applicable) only if the change is made with the Dean's approval within the period for late registration.
