Students may register to audit a class for no credit, with the permission of the Department Chair. Approval to audit a class is on a space available basis. Full tuition paying students have first priority for class. Students auditing a class pay one-third of the course tuition, plus the full registration fee. No student will be allowed to change registration from credit to audit or from audit to credit after the first class. If a student does change from audit to credit before the first class, the full tuition must be paid. If this happens after the first day of the quadmester, the student must also pay the add/drop fee. Students auditing a class receive the AU grade only if they are in attendance for all of the class periods. Audited classes do not figure into the student’s GPA.
