Auditing Courses

Students who audit a course are not required to take examinations, prepare class assignments, or write term papers. No letter grade is given, but the transcript shows AD for the course unless the instructor concludes that the “AD” is not warranted on the basis of attendance. In this case, the transcript will show an AW, indicating failure to fulfill the attendance requirements. Students must receive the instructor’s permission to audit a course. Students who do not change their status to that of an auditor by the specified date in the University calendar and who fail to submit papers, assignments, or take examinations will receive an “F” for the course.

Matriculated students auditing courses must pay full tuition. Financial aid in the form of federal loans and scholarships awarded by the University may not be applied towards an audited course.
