The auditing student is expected to attend class regularly and should consult with the instructor to determine what else is expected in the course. If an auditing student does not attend class regularly or does not fulfill agreed-upon expectations, the instructor may send a memo directing the office of registration and records to drop the student from the class. Such drops will be graded with a 'W' grade and will be subject to the normal fee refund policy. Regular students may audit courses to the maximum authorized academic load. Individuals not currently enrolled in the University must apply for admission in order to register as an auditor. Courses audited are counted the same way as courses taken for credit in determining required student fees. Credit is not awarded for auditing a class. A student cannot change from credit to audit basis after the no penalty drop deadline (Change of schedule period).
