A current student may audit regular academic courses, provided space and required instructional equipment are available. A student may not audit regular academic courses offered on an independent-study basis. No credit is granted, no examinations are required, and no grades are reported for an auditing student. Attendance requirements, class preparation, and class participation are at the discretion of the instructor. Submission of a completed Course Audit Request Form and payment of required fees must occur prior to the registration deadline. Required fees include the audit fee and applicable course-related fees (i.e. lab, materials, field, etc.) as determined by the institution. Fees associated with a course audit are nonrefundable unless the institution denies the audit request.
