Auditing Courses

Only an individual fully eligible to enroll in the university may attend a class as an auditor without receiving college credit.

Permission to audit a course must be obtained utilizing the Course Audit Approval Form after the first day of class by getting approval signatures from the instructor of the course, the chair of the department that offers the course, the dean of the school or college, and the Registrar’s Office.

  • Persons auditing a course will be charged the same tuition and applicable fee rate as those enrolled for credit, except as indicated below for those 65 years of age or older.
  • The auditor may not participate in the laboratory part of a course or a studio, practicum, workshop, or activity course.
  • Attendance as an auditor may not be made on the basis of a claim for course credit and will not count towards enrollment load or status.
  • Courses that are audited are not eligible for financial aid or VA benefits.
  • Audited courses are not recorded on the student’s permanent record (the course will not appear on the academic transcript).
  • Any persons 65 years of age or older are eligible to enroll in up to six semester credit hours of coursework and receive a waiver for tuition to audit classes without charge, provided space is available.

Information about auditing may be obtained in the Office of the Registrar.
