How to audit a class

"Auditing" is taking a course without receiving a grade or credit. A student who wishes to audit a course must have the permission of the instructor concerned. Students who audit a course must follow the regular admission and registration procedures and are governed by the regulations applied to regular students. The student pays the regular course fees but is not required to participate in class discussions, take tests, make reports, or take the final examination and does not receive credit. The student is listed on the class roll and receives a grade of “AU” for a final grade and zero credit hours for the course. Students may change from Credit to Audit or from Audit to Credit during the “Drop-Add” period at the beginning of the semester but may not change thereafter. Financial Aid will not cover the cost of audited courses.

How to complete registration

Registration is not complete until all tuition and fees are paid in full. Students who have not completed the registration process cannot sign in to Canvas for online classes and are not listed on class rolls. Any student who believes they are incompletely registered should contact the cashier or the financial aid office.

Cautions

Failure to drop or withdraw through proper procedures will result in a low final grade or F (all missed work will earn a “zero”). A student should never quit attending classes without officially dropping courses.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all paperwork and processes are completed. The college will not be responsible if paperwork is not processed or messages are not received by the appropriate personnel.

Students can make appointments with their advisor using AdvisorTrac. Advisors’ email addresses, offices and phone extensions are listed in the Faculty-Staff Directory.

Changing a class load will affect future financial assistance. It is the student’s responsibility to discuss this issue with the relevant financial aid, scholarship, etc. personnel before making a decision. Any veteran who drops a class may be required to repay the Veterans Administration a part of the benefits derived up to the point in which the class was dropped.

Changing a class load might affect personal insurance coverage or other personal business matters outside the college. It is the student’s responsibility to determine the effect of dropping classes.
