You may choose to “audit” a class — that is, enroll in a class and get no grade — unless it is a course that is required in your academic program. You must pay for the course. Once you have made this choice, you cannot switch back to get a standard grade.
Board of Regents Policy: An “audit” (AU) is an administrative transcript notation for students auditing a course. This status will allow them to participate in class activities without being required to meet the examination requirements of the course. A student who wishes to change from credit to audit status must request this within the first four weeks of the course, using such forms and procedures as the college may prescribe. Students auditing a course may not change to credit status.
Students may register as auditors under the following conditions:
- Full tuition and fees must be paid.
- “Audit” status must be declared at the time of registration, or can be changed from credit status to audit status within the first four weeks of the course. All permissions and registrations for auditing courses must be filed in the Records Office by this deadline. See specific audit-by dates on the Academic Calendar.
- The course grade will be entered as “AU,” which is an administrative transcript notation signifying no credit was awarded.
- Full-time students must obtain the consent of their academic advisor.
Students auditing a course may not change to credit status. Declaring audit status is an irrevocable decision.
