What does it cost to audit a class?

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


Does an audit figure into my enrollment status for Financial Aid or toward a degree?

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.
