Auditor Guidelines

Date Implemented: October 01, 1999
Date Revised: February 24, 2009

A student may register for a course as an auditor provided s/he meets the prerequisites for the course and has the permission of the instructor. An audit fee may apply.

Only if the instructor deems performance is satisfactory will the course appear on the student's transcript with a notation indicating that the student was registered as an auditor. If performance is not satisfactory, no notation of the course will appear on the transcript.

Auditor status does not confer credit toward degree requirements. Auditor status cannot be changed to "for credit" status after the last day to add the class. A student who completes a class as an auditor may not receive degree credit for the course without retaking the course for credit.

Important Note: In the absence of a more stringent policy at the school or college level the University Graduate Academic Policies apply. Should a graduate program not have a specific policy or should there be omissions or gaps in the policy for a specific graduate school program, the University Graduate Policy shall govern.

The Graduate Academic Policies are the responsibility of the Graduate Curriculum Committee Convener. For additions or revisions contact
