Auditing courses

An auditor is a student who is taking a course without seeking a grade or credit for the course.

Students usually audit courses for self-interest and academic exploration. In general, if you’re auditing a course you’ll be expected to complete all course requirements except the final exam, and your transcript will show a statement of audit for the course. If the performance is not satisfactory, a Failed (F) standing in the course may be given. Read more about auditing courses in the Academic Calendar.

Note: Continuation as an Access Studies student is normally contingent upon maintaining a passing grade on all courses attempted. See Academic Calendar for more information.

How to register as an auditor

You need approval to audit a course. Each school and faculty’s approval process will vary.  Please contact the school or faculty offering the course(s) you would like to audit to learn more.
