Auditing Classes

A course or seminar that is not closed may be audited informally, with no recognition of the class on the transcript, or formally, with recognition of the class and an audit (AUD) grade. To audit a class the student must complete and submit Part I of the Audit Permission form by the end of the add/drop period. This two-part form is available from the Registrar's Office. Students formally auditing a class are responsible for discussing with the professor what the expectations are regarding attendance, preparation, and participation. At the end of the term, the student must obtain the professor's signature on Part II of the form to notify the Registrar that the audit was successfully completed.

Although credit is not awarded toward the degree requirement, a student who audits a course or a seminar bears the financial responsibility if they exceed 18 credits in a semester. An audited class may not conflict with any class a student is officially enrolled. An audited class may not be converted to a graded course after the end of the add/drop period.

Students cannot register to audit a course through WebReg.

Please direct any questions regarding auditing a course or seminar to the Law Registrar's Office
