Audit enrollment in courses provides students the opportunity to attend a class as a noncredit participant, usually as a listener-observer. This kind of enrollment may have value for students who want an introduction to subjects outside their major fields, a review or refresher, or other purposes where credit and grades are not needed or would pose an unnecessary academic threat.
With the permission of the faculty member and department Dean, students can enroll in any course on an audit basis. Students and faculty members must agree on what portion(s) of courses the student plans to audit and the requirements the instructor has for attendance and participation. If the student fulfills the agreement for the audit, the grade of "N" will be entered on the student's academic transcripts. If the student does not fulfill the audit agreement, the registrar, upon request from the faculty member, will withdraw the student from the courses and assign a grade of "W."
Audit enrollments carry no credit or grade point value. No inference is made regarding the quality of a student's mastery of the course subject matter. Students enrolled in FlexForward programs are excluded from audit enrollments.
Standard tuition and fees apply to all audit enrollments regardless of the length and scope of the audit. The last day to change from graded credit to audit is the 5th business day of the semester. Once changed to audit, the class cannot be changed to graded credit.
