Non-Matriculating Status and Course Auditing

Non-Matriculating Status

Non-matriculated students may register for courses in the Graduate School by complete the admission application to the Graduate School as a non-matriculated student. Students will be charged the associated tuition and fees. The number of course credits that a non-matriculated student can take from offerings in the Graduate School will be limited to a total of 12 credits.

Official Audits

A full-time matriculated student may audit a course with the permission of the course director. Students auditing a course do not write examinations or papers and do not necessarily participate in class discussions. However, auditors should clarify expectations at the start of the course with the course director and may be required to fully participate in the class. A completed Course Audit Form, with all required signatures, must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar prior to the end of the add/drop period. An audited course will appear on the student’s transcript with the designation “AU”. Students cannot receive credits for a course being audited.

Non-Matriculating Students and Audits

Non-matriculated students, including employees, who wish to audit a course and have the audited course appear on a transcript as “AU” will be billed at the same rate as for courses taken for credit. All students wishing to take a class must submit complete the admission application to the Graduate School as a non-matriculated students and submit a Course Audit Form to the Office of the Registrar. Employees may petition the Dean of the Graduate School for a waiver of course fees. Decisions are at the discretion of the Dean.
