A student may audit a course subject to the approval of the instructor of the course, and by paying the registration fee as well as the audit fee. Audit and registration fee information is available in Business Services. Students should indicate on their registration forms any courses they plan to audit. Students who audit a class attend the class, but are not required to do the course work, do not take examinations, may not ask for work to be evaluated, and do not receive credit for the course. Full-time students are charged for all audited courses in excess of 17 units of combined audit/credit course work. Auditors are not admitted to classes that require personal instruction and/or individual participation, such as online courses, performance, studio, laboratory, writing, or language tutorials.
Senior citizens (50 and older) may audit up to two classes per semester at no charge. Only two senior citizen auditors may register for each eligible course, provided the course is not full. Auditing is not permitted for classes that require personal instruction and/or individual participation, such as online courses, performance, studio, laboratory, writing, or language tutorials. Registration forms are available at the Registrar’s Office. Seniors must show proof of age and need to obtain the instructor’s permission by signature on the registration form prior to registration at the Registrar’s Office.
Alumni Association members may audit one class per semester without tuition and only with the consent of the instructor. Alumni must first obtain the instructor's permission signature on the Registration Form and then present their Alumni Association Benefits Card (obtained through the Alumni Relations Office) at the Registrar's Office to register. Normal open registration times (not registration fees) and any applicable class fees apply to alumni. If a class is full with regular students, auditing students will be put on a waiting list and admitted only in the event of a cancellation. Class size may not exceed maximum enrollment.
