  • Tuition and fees are assessed accordingly for the course.
  • A student must obtain approval before registration by the department chairperson of the department offering the course. The student's responsibility in the course is determined by the department chair and the instructor of the course.
  • Submit the signed Audit Request Form to the Registrar's Office before the deadline. View the credit/no credit deadlines.
  • No changes to audit a course or change back from auditing a course are permitted after the deadline.
