Audit is a registration status allowing students to attend a course without
receiving credit. Both graduate and undergraduate students may audit
courses. Audit units do not count toward full-time

toward the determination of continuous
enrollment for catalog purposes.
Registration for audit is at the course instructor's discretion; at the time of approval for audit registration, the instructor and
student will agree upon the student's level of
participation in the class. The instructor may administratively
drop the student for nonattendance. Students are required to process a

credit to audit will be permitted only if the student is doing
passing work in that course and receives the approval of
the course instructor

credit to audit, or vice versa, will be permitted only
if the student receives the approval of the course
