No one is permitted to “sit in” or attend class sessions unless registered for the course.
Students who do not wish to take a class for credit may have the option of registering as an audit student. Students should refer to the class schedule for a given semester in order to determine which classes are available for audit -- they’re marked with the @ symbol. Current students may participate as auditors by registering as such through the Student Information System, and prospects may participate as auditors by submitting a Non-Credit Application and Registration form.
Auditors differ from credit students in that they are not required to complete any of the reading or coursework outlined in the syllabus. The instructor is not required to review coursework conducted by auditors, although he or she is welcome to do so at his/her discretion. That said, auditors are invited to participate in as much of the reading and coursework as they are able, acknowledging that this affords the best opportunity to learn. Auditors are required to attend at least 80% of the class sessions.
Audited classes may be repeated for credit. In the event that a student would like to repeat an audited course for credit, he or she will be required to complete all reading and coursework within the current semester.
Audit enrollment is restricted in some courses.
