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.

What does it mean to AUDIT a course?

  • Audits appear as an AU on transcripts and do not count toward your GPA.
  • 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.
  • Financial aid and veterans' benefits are not available for audited classes.
  • Students may not change their registration status (from audit to credit) after the last day to add courses. No exceptions or grade changes will be permitted after the add deadline. Check the Student Academic Calendar for deadlines.
