The audit privilege permits the auditor to attend a course, and to do assignments, but it does not permit the auditor to take examinations in the course or to have his or her work evaluated in any other way. The auditor receives a “grade” of AU for the course, and no credits are earned. Students may not change their enrollment status from audit to credit, or from credit to audit.

Audit privileges are not ordinarily available in studio, laboratory, or performance courses or courses where class participation of students is of major importance, nor are they available in credit-free courses offered by the institution or in any foreign study program or course.
