Audited Courses

University Policy

College of Arts & Sciences Policy

CAS students who wish to audit a course should familiarize themselves with the University Policy on Audited Courses and consult with their academic advisor. Permission of the instructor is required via a signed “Permission to Audit a Course” form, obtainable here on the CAS Academic Advising website. Students are responsible for delivering signed permission and add/drop forms to CAS Advising at 100 Bay State Road, on the fourth floor, before the semester deadline for adding a course.

Priority in registration for CAS courses will be given to students who are taking the course for credit. Students’ ability to audit a particular course may also be limited by classroom capacity or overall course enrollment. If space is available, the instructor has full discretion over whether a student is permitted to audit a course, except when the relevant department or program faculty has collectively determined that certain courses may not be audited under any circumstances.
