Auditing Courses

Policies  > Auditing Courses


Approval to audit, or visit, a course is sometimes granted to qualified students by the dean of the college in which the course is offered. Such approval conveys only the privilege of observing and does not include submitting papers, taking tests, or participating in laboratories or field work.

Students auditing courses will pay the regular tuition and fees. Students 65 years of age or older may audit any course offered by the university without payment of a fee if space is available. These students should contact the Student Business Services Office, in the Welcome Center, for a fee waiver application.

Students may obtain audit application forms from the office of the appropriate dean. Student Business Services will assess the fees. Students wishing to audit may register only after late registration. Credit is not given for an audited course, nor may a change to credit status be made after students have registered.
