The mark of ‘‘AU’’ (audit) is recorded in place of a letter grade or credit hours in courses when the instructor and dean have consented to such enrollment. Students who audit classes are not required to take part in discussions or complete examinations. If the attendance requirements are not completed to the satisfaction of the instructor, a permanent record of the enrollment is not retained. Courses taken for audit are charged the same fees as courses completed for academic credit.
Students intending to enroll in a course on an audit basis must indicate this intention at the time of registration. Students wishing to change from a credit to an audit basis during the semester must have the approval of the instructor, the adviser and the dean, and must do so no later than the midpoint of the semester or, in the case of a short course, no later than the midpoint of that course.
