Auditing Courses

Any individual may audit a Curriculum class based on the following:

The individual pays the normal tuition and fees.  However, any person who is at least 65 years old may audit non-self-supporting basis courses without the payment of tuition and fees provided the individual meets the other criteria listed herein.

Auditing students do not take tests or examinations, they do not receive grades, credit or financial aid, and cannot later change the “audit” to credit.

Students auditing a course must meet the same course prerequisite and attendance standards as all other students in the course.  Auditing a course will not meet the prerequisite of any sequential or higher-level course.

Auditing is subject to open seats in the course and a student who audits a course shall not displace other students seeking to enroll in the course.

Students who audit a course and withdraw or are dropped from the course will be issued a grade of “W”.

Students who desire to audit must inform their instructor at the first-class session, complete the appropriate forms and return them to the Office of Admissions, Records, and Retention within 15 class days.  Audits appear on the grade report as “Y”.

Senior citizens may audit classes under the following conditions: 1) the class is not self-supporting or personal enrichment, 2) the class has the required number of FTE generating students to be viable, 3) the class has no mandatory clinical hours, and 4) the appropriate third-party agency approves credentials for students who audit classes.  Class will be comprised of no more than 10% auditing students.
