You may choose to register for a course as an audit, which means you will not earn credit for the course.

If you are a degree seeking student, audit courses will be billed at the same rate as degree seeking credits.

If you are admitted as an AUDIT ONLY student, you will qualify for special audit pricing based on your residency per the audit fee schedule on the right.

Per-credit audit fees and course-specific fees, such as lab fees, will still apply.

Learn more about audits.

Many Graduate programs do not allow audit only students.

If you have questions about your admission status, please contact admissions.
