Auditing Classes

Auditing a course allows a student to take a class without the benefit of a grade or credit for a course. A student who audits a course does so for the purposes of self-enrichment and academic exploration.

Tuition and fees will be assessed at the same rate for audited classes as those taken for credit. Students are not required to attend class or take exams in audited courses. Audits appear as an AU on transcripts and do not count toward your GPA. Financial aid and veterans' benefits are not available for audited classes.

You should declare your intent to audit a course when you register and space must be available in the class.  Students taking the course for credit have priority to class seats.  You can do this by choosing Audit from the pull-down menu under Action when the class appears under your Current Schedule.

Challenging Classes for Credit

Students who feel that their experience or previous knowledge would enable them to successfully challenge (test out of) a course offered at SLCC may apply to take a challenge examination at Testing Services. For more information, visit Testing Services or call 801-957-4500.
