Students may elect to audit a course for enrichment purposes or as preparation for advanced study. An Audit course does not fulfill degree requirements; course credit is not awarded. For registration and billing purposes, Audit credit hours are included in a student’s 12-18 credit flat tuition rate. An Audit course is recorded on the transcript with a grade of AD unless the auditor fails to meet attendance and/or class expectations, which may result in a grade of AW. Tuition is charged at the published rate.
Students register for a course as “Audit” by submitting a Course Audit request form to Enrollment Services, Rodman 249. The form requires approvals from the academic advisor and instructor of the course to be audited. The auditor is required to attend regularly and should discuss class expectations with the instructor prior to enrolling. The deadline to change from credit to Audit status is by the end of Add/Drop week for part-of-term classes and the end of the second week of the term for full-semester classes. For specific course auditing deadlines per term, please see the Registrar's calendar: https://jcu.edu/registrar/about-us/registrar-calendar
Individuals who are not currently enrolled full-time at the University should contact the Office of the Provost for more information on course audit availability and guidelines.
