Auditing Courses – Policy and Procedure
Students wishing to “audit” classes must come to the Student Advocacy Center. (Except All COC students who must see the designated advisor in the COC Dean’s Office)
Financial Aid monies are not available for audited classes nor can audited classes be used toward “Satisfactory Academic Progress” (SAP).
Individuals wishing to audit classes at Life University may pre-register at any time. (Except COC students who must see the designated advisor in the Dean’s Office during preregistration) Paperwork is held and processed the 2nd Monday of each quarter. Auditing placement is based upon seating availability. Proper paper work obtained from the Student Advocacy Center must be filed before the quarter begins. Students should attend planned classes while waiting for the paperwork to be processed. Accepted students’ names should appear on the official class roster of the courses audited. The courses being audited should also appear on the student’s approved schedule of courses. Should seating be unavailable, the Student Advocacy Center will attempt to notify the student as soon as possible after the 2nd Tuesday.
No degree credit is granted for courses scheduled on an auditing basis, and students are not permitted to change to or from an auditing status except through the regular procedures for schedule change. The grade for auditing is AU (Audited). The grade of AU will have no effect upon the student’s grade point average, and students will not be permitted to have the audit grade changed at any future date.
Full-time UG students may audit a course in addition to their 20-hour limit, and dual degree DC students may audit a course in addition to their 31 hours. Auditing is available to students, staff and faculty as well as interested persons from the general public. Students who audit an entire course will be charged $100.00 per course or students who audit portions of a course(s) will be charged $100.00, in units, per 30 course hours.
