A student may audit a class if it is open for enrollment. Students may change an audit to a credit course only during the first week of class. Students may change a credit course to an audit until the last day to withdraw with a "W." Any requests to change a course's status must be made in writing to the Registrar's Office. Changing a course to "audit" may have financial aid implications. Courses that are audited are the same cost as courses that are taken for credit, and no academic credit is given for an audited class. Students who change a course to audit status are expected to attend the class.
