Students may wish to attend and participate in a course without receiving a grade. Students who choose to audit a course may attend any and all sessions of the course, participate in discussions, activities and assignments, but are not required to do so. Students who elect to audit a course must formally register for the course. Auditors are required to pay the full-published tuition price as advertised in the Extension catalog and the course listing on our website.
Converting Letter Grade to Audit: You may not petition to convert from letter grade to audit status but may withdraw from the course or petition for a grade of Incomplete (see policies on Withdrawal and Grades).
Converting Audit to Letter Grade: When you enroll in a course you may choose either to audit the course or to receive a letter grade (A, B, C, D, or F). If you audit the course, it will not appear on your transcript. Auditors are required to pay the same enrollment fee as those seeking a letter grade. If you have completed all work to date in the class you may petition to convert from audit to letter grade status but must do so within the first half of the course; requests received after the first half of the course will be denied.
All withdrawal requests must be submitted in writing to Student Services. It is the student's responsibility to request withdrawal from a course. If you do not request withdrawal, you will receive a grade based on the work completed. This may result in a poor or failing grade. Please note that withdrawal requests must be submitted during the first 75% of a course and that a separate refund policy may apply. Withdrawal requests submitted within the first 25% of the course will not appear on your transcript.
- Withdrawal requests submitted within the first 25% of the course will not appear on your transcript.
- Withdrawal requests submitted after the first 25% but within the first 75% will receive a grade of W.
- After the first 75% of the class you will receive the grade earned.
Only one withdrawal per course is permitted.
