Courses are offered ONLY on a space-available basis with the approvals of both the instructor of the course and the Registrar's Office. An auditor is considered a passive learner and may not recite in class or take examinations, but is expected to attend classes with reasonable regularity. 

If you would like to audit a course, please view the following admissions requirements: 

 The Undergraduate application is used to apply as an auditing student. Please submit ONLY ONE application and use ONLY that application all the way through to submission.
