If a student wishes to register for a course without earning a letter grade or credit, the course may be taken as an audit (policy 34-68, 48-80).

  • Must be processed prior to the semester/session or during the drop/add period for the course.
  • No signature needed.
  • Course will appear on the student's schedule as though it has been scheduled for credit.
  • The course will appear on the student's transcript with the grading symbol "AU" if attendance was regular or "W" if the attendance was unsatisfactory.
  • No credit is earned, and the grade-point average is not affected.
  • A course may be late-added for audit only if the course was never scheduled by the student at any time during the semester.
  • A course may be dropped for credit and added for audit or dropped for audit and added for credit by undergraduate students only during the drop/add period for the course.
  • Credits for a course being audited are not counted in determining the following:
    • full-time status for undergraduate students
    • enrollment status (full-time or part-time) for graduate students
    • calculating semester standing
    • financial aid status
    • full-time status for international students for reporting to SEVIS (Student Exchange Visitor Information System) under federal requirements.
Process:
  1. In person using a Registration Drop/Add Form.
  2. Write "AU" in place of credits on the form.
  3. Submit the form to the department offering the course or the Registrar's office.
