A student may be allowed to audit a lecture course or the lecture portion of a combined lecture/laboratory course only with the approval of the instructor, department head and dean of the school in which the course is offered and when available faculty and facilities permit.
The privilege of auditing courses is restricted. Students may audit a lecture course or the lecture part of a combined lecture and laboratory course with the approval of the dean and the head of the department in which the course is offered. The auditing privilege is rarely permitted in laboratory or combined lecture and laboratory courses. It is not permitted in studio courses in the Department of Fine Arts. Auditors must complete the regular admission and registration process and are listed on class rolls, but they are not required to participate in classroom discussions, take tests or final examinations or make reports. However, regular attendance at class meetings is required. The grade of AU (Audit) is awarded to those meeting these requirements. The grade of NR (No Grade Reported) is assigned for those not meeting the attendance requirement. Auditors who are not regularly enrolled students will register on the last day of the final registration period. A fee will be charged for auditing a course. Members of the faculty and staff may audit lecture courses without payment of the auditing fee with approval of the head of the department in which the course is offered and the dean; however, the regular registration process must be completed.
