Auditing classes

If you don’t need credit for a course, consider auditing it. An auditor attends class but doesn’t hand in papers, take part in discussions, receive evaluations, or earn any credit. To audit, fill out a Class Auditor Permit pdf.

Auditing is allowed by a course's instructor when space is available.

A student who wants to audit should complete the above form and get consent from both the instructor and his or her dean. (Law students can't audit law courses.)

A nonstudent under age 65 needs instructor consent, and will pay $20 per course to the cashiers in Main Bldg room 8.
