2017-2018 Graduate Catalog


Audit Enrollment

Occasional visitation of classes by students is allowed with the consent of the instructor. Any extended attendance requires enrollment as an audit.

Auditors are admitted to classes on a space-available basis only. A non-refundable audit fee is charged. Students wishing to audit graduate courses must be admitted for graduate study in the appropriate program and have written approval of the instructor of the course for which they wish to register. Non-degree graduate students wanting to audit graduate courses must be admitted to graduate study through the dean of the appropriate school/college and have written approval of the instructor of the course prior to registration. Students wishing to audit MLA courses must be admitted to the MLA Program and have written permission from the instructor of the course prior to registration. The following regulations are applicable:

  1. Certain classes - Laboratory and clinical classes; day ranch management classes; laboratory sections of lecture classes; activity and performance classes, such as in studio art, music and ballet classes - may not be audited.
  2. Registration to audit or change a credit class to audit is from the second day of late registration to the last day of late registration as published in the University's academic calendar.
  3. Classroom recitation and participation may be restricted at the discretion of the instructor; no grade is assigned and no credit is awarded.
  4. If credit is desired, the student must register for and repeat the regular course after paying regular tuition.
  5. The student's name will appear on the instructor's class roll. In order for "AU" to appear on the transcript, however, the instructor must certify at the end of the semester that the student has attended as an auditor. Audits not certified by the instructor as a final grade will be omitted from the student record.
