Graduate Audit Policy

Audit status indicates that a student has registered as a listener for the course. Auditing students must meet the requirements for admission to a degree program. An auditing student must meet the same prerequisites and pay the same tuition and fees as a credit student, but attendance and completion of the course assignments are at the option of the student unless otherwise specified by the instructor. Students not completing the requirements stipulated by the instructor will be issued a grade of AW. Enrollment for audit in those courses in which auditing is permitted is on a space-available basis. Not all programs offer the audit option; therefore, applicants should check with their program of interest to ensure that they are eligible for consideration.

A student may change from audit to credit and from credit to audit until the third class of the semester, with permission of the instructor. After that date, change from audit to credit is not permitted. Once a student has audited a course, that course cannot be retaken for credit.
