Audit Policy

Listener status denotes that the student is auditing the course. To receive a grade of L on the transcript, the student must satisfy the attendance and other course requirements set by the instructor for an official audit. Students who do not meet these requirements receive a final grade of AW.

Students may audit a course if they are officially registered and have the prior written approval of the instructor. Permission is granted prior to the beginning of the semester in question and enrollment for audit is always on a space-available basis; the normal tuition policy applies. After the end of add/drop period, students registered for audit may not change their registration and take the course for credit; nor may students who registered for credit change their registration to audit. Courses taken on an audit basis cannot count toward the requirements for a degree.  A student can repeat an audited course for credit.

Students who register to audit a course may not change their registration and take the course for credit, nor may students who register to take a course for credit change to audit after the following dates:
