  1. The individual pays the normal tuition and fees.  However, any person who is at least 65 years old may audit non-self-supporting basis courses without the payment of tuition provided the individual meets the other criteria listed herein.
  2. Auditing students do not take tests or examinations, nor do they receive grades, credit or financial aid, and they cannot later change the “audit” to credit.
  3. Students auditing a course must meet the same course prerequisite and attendance standards as other students. Auditing a course will not meet the prerequisite of any sequential or higher-level course.
  4. Students who audit a course and withdraw or are dropped from the course will be issued a grade of “W.”
  5. Students who desire to audit must inform their instructor at the first class session, complete a “Request for Audit” form, and return it to the Registrar’s Office within 15 class days. Audits appear on the grade report as “Y.”
  6. Auditing is subject to open seats in the course and a student who audits a course shall not displace other students seeking to enroll in the course.
