Auditing a Course

A student may register in a course on an audit basis by completing and submitting an Audit Form to the Admissions and Records Office by the published deadline to change to audit status for the term on the Academic Calendar. The tuition and fees for an audited course are the same as the tuition and fees for taking the course for credit.

You can download the Course Audit Form. Forms are also available in the campus Admissions and Records Office. Students may bring or fax the completed form to any campus Admissions and Records office during the designated period.

A student may change from credit to audit or audit to credit status during the term's Add/Drop period only.

Class tests or examinations are not required of the student auditing the course; however, class attendance is expected. Additionally, the student must meet the same prerequisite requirements as degree-seeking students for specific courses (e.g., student must be a high school graduate to take college credit courses; student cannot take a Gordon Rule course without appropriate prerequisites.)

Students will receive a grade of “AU” for courses they audit. Audit courses will not affect the grade point average, academic standing, or award credits.

Developmental education and vocational courses cannot be audited.

Courses taken on an audit basis may not be counted when calculating eligibility for Veterans’ benefits, financial assistance, or certification of enrollment by outside agencies.

Audited courses do not count in the total attempts for grade forgiveness or withdrawal purposes. A change from audit to credit is not permitted after the Add/Drop period.
