Auditing Summer Courses

The designation of "Audit" is a registration status used when students officially register for a class without earning a letter grade or credit. Audit courses are subject to full tuition and fees.

Students may register for a summer class on an audit basis only when space is available and only with the permission of the instructor and Director of Summer Session. Students who receive permission to audit a course are expected to attend classes regularly and complete assigned readings. Other requirements regarding participation are to be agreed upon by the instructor and Director of Summer Session.

No audited courses can be counted toward a degree. They cannot be paid for with financial aid or the Wild Card.

All students attending and participating in a course must be officially registered. No provisions for students to merely "sit-in" on summer courses are made and attendance without payment of fees is prohibited.
