Audit Policy

Under the Audit Policy, students may enroll in courses which provide an opportunity to assess their ability to do college work, explore a discipline of interest, refresh prior learning, or supplement existing knowledge.  Typically, a student attends lectures, seminars and/or labs but does not complete graded assignments (unless agreed upon with the instructor).  When enrolled as an audit, the student will not be given a final grade, nor will credit towards graduation be given for the course (the academic transcript will reflect an AU for the course). The student must pay the full tuition for the course. Financial Aid does not cover the costs for an audited course. 

Not all courses can be taken for audit, and entry as an auditing student is by the instructor's permission.  A student must complete a registration form as an audit during the first week of classes. Once admitted as an audit, the student may not change to credit status after the designated add period; likewise, a student registered for credit may not change to audit status after the designated add period. The Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs may make exceptions to this policy.
