Auditing a Class

  • The option to audit a course is available for students who wish to take a course for content only, not for credit. Since you receive no credit, audited courses will not count towards any degree requirements. You will receive a “Y” grade on your transcript which does not affect your grade point average.

    Graduate courses, lab courses, independent study courses and courses which require one-on-one instruction are generally not available for audit. The level of participation permitted or expected by auditors is determined by each instructor.

    To audit a course, choose the audit option when you register for the course on SU Online. If planning to audit a course, contact Student Financial Services for Tuition and fees.
