Q: How do I audit a course?
A: To audit a course, you must first be registered for the course. Then fill out the blue audit form located online under Registrar Forms, (audit forms are also available at the Registrar's Office at Church Street, or on the third floor at Stuart St.). Take the form to the professor, get the first signature, and submit it to the Registrar's Office. The Registrar's Office will send the form back to the professor at the end of the semester to get the final signature.
Q: Do I have to turn in my audit form during registration week?
A: You can, but you don't have to. You may turn in an audit form at anytime during the semester as long as it is before the final exam (with both signatures if it is after classes ended).
Q: Is auditing a course at the discretion of the professor?
A: Yes, some professors may not allow students to audit their course, so it is important to find out your professor's audit policy before you decide to audit.
Q: How will auditing a course affect my transcript?
A: The course will be listed on your transcript with an "AU" instead of a grade. The credits will not be reflected as earned.
Q: If the course I am auditing pushes me over credits, do I still have to seek approval from the Director of Student Services?
A: Yes, but your reason for going above credits on the Student Request Form would be that you are auditing a course.
Q: Do I have to register for a course I plan to audit?
A: Yes, you must be registered for a course you plan to audit.
Q: Do I receive credits for a course that I audit?
A: No, the credits for an audited course will not be included in your total credits towards graduation.
Q: Does the attendance policy apply to me if I audit a course?
A: Yes, the same attendance policy applies.
