Policies for Graduate Students
Auditing a Class
Audit of a course within Arts, Sciences and Engineering related to a degree program is permitted for full-time and part-time graduate students when approved by the course instructor. There is a fee to audit a course. This fee may be covered by the Dean’s Office provided the student petitions for the fee to be covered before the end of the Add/Drop period via the Audit Fee Waiver Request Form, which must be signed by the student's faculty advisor and the course instructor.
The audited course will appear on the student's transcript provided the student attends throughout the course. Students who wish to receive credit for such a course may do so by (1) changing the registration in the office of the graduate registrar prior to the end of the sixth full week of classes in a given semester, and (2) paying the required tuition for the course. Note that once a course has been audited, it cannot be repeated for credit without prior approval of the Dean of Graduate Studies.
