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.

If you choose to audit a course, you will still be assessed regular tuition and mandatory student fees. Read more about auditing courses in the Academic Calendar.
