Auditing

Students who audit a course do not receive credit toward graduation or a grade for the course, but the fact that they audited the course is recorded on the transcript. Such students must register for the course as “Audit” from the assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences or the Boler College of Business and pay the same tuition as those who take the course for credit. Audit students are required to attend regularly. Failure to do so can result in a grade of AW.

Change of registration from credit to audit status must be carried out through Rodman Hall, Room 205/206, during the first two weeks of the semester. First-year students (those with fewer than 25 hours completed) must have the approval of the academic advisor and the appropriate assistant dean.

Audit for Dean’s List Students. Dean’s List students who have earned 60 semester hours of credit at John Carroll toward graduation, and who attain the distinction of being on the Dean’s List in any given semester, may—during the course-change week of the following semester and with permission from the appropriate assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences or the Boler College of Business—register to audit one course without a fee. Such students are required to attend their audited courses.

The Dean’s List audit privilege may not be used for any course for which students have already registered.

Audit for Honors Program Students. All Honors Program students in good standing, who have completed at least 32 hours of course work at John Carroll University, are eligible to audit one course a semester without fee. Permission to audit a course must be obtained from the director of the Honors Program and the assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences or the Boler College of Business. Students are expected to meet the normal attendance requirements of the audited course. A student must register for the course to be audited during the first week of classes. Any earlier registration for the course to be audited invalidates the privilege of a free audit for that course.
