If you wish to register for a class on an audit basis this means that you are able to attend lectures but are not entitled to participate in class discussions, hand in assignments, or write mid-term or final examinations. You do not receive any credit for the classes you audit. Classes requiring permission will be marked on the right hand side in the class search 'Audit allowed with permission'.
If you wish to audit a class, registration and changes must be done through Student Central. Audit registration for a class will not be accepted until the first day of lectures for that class. Written approval by the instructor and the department head is required for some classes.
If you audit a class you will have a grade of AU on your student record, unless you withdraw from the class or the instructor determines that attendance was not sufficient to earn an audit grade, in which case a grade of withdrawal from audit (WAU) will be assigned.
Tuition for auditing degree-level classes is normally 50% of regular tuition for the class. International undergraduate audit students will be assessed the international student differential of 2.6 times the tuition.
Tuition for auditing certificate-level classes (e.g. CACE, CAP, CERTESL, PHC) are assessed 100% tuition.
