Auditing Courses

Students desiring to audit courses (no credit awarded) must receive approval of their adviser. Normal registration procedures must be completed, then a form to have the grade option changed must be submitted to the Office of Academic Records and Registration. The cost of auditing courses and taking courses for credit are the same. Students may not change from an audit status to a graded status (A-F and P/NC) or vice versa after the second week of the fall and spring semesters. Grade option deadlines vary for summer and winter sessions. Since no credit is awarded, audited courses do not meet any graduation requirements.

A student may audit a class in which they have previously received credit.  The same  policy above applies; the student must complete a grade option form and submit the same no later than the second week of the fall or spring semester.  The student will be charged tuition for the course, but will not earn additional credit.  The student's original grade will be the grade of record and be the grade used in the student's GPA calculation.
