Auditing a Course

If you would like to take a course without earning a letter grade or credit, you may request to audit the course. The cost of the course is the same as if you took it for credit, and you may be required to participate fully in course work. You should clarify the expectations with the instructor before you register. If you’re considering auditing a course, you should contact your adviser.

Steps to Audit a Course
