In order to receive an Audit grade, the student must follow these steps:

  1. Register for the course first. Regular tuition rates apply.
  2. Bring the Audit Request form to the instructor for approval and signature. Each department will set guidelines for the approval or disapproval of a student audit for each course.
  3. Return form to the Student Enrollment & Records Office prior to the drop deadline of the class.

Students who audit a class must pay the regular tuition and fees for the class.

Courses for which the AU grade is assigned will not count toward any certificate or degree program. The AU grade cannot be used to satisfy the following: a course prerequisite, in-residence requirements, financial aid benefits or veteran’s benefits. To receive credit for a course that was originally audited, the student must retake the course in a subsequent semester and satisfactorily complete the course.
