Auditing a Course
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.
See tuition and fees on the Student Financial Services web site to determine the cost of auditing a course.
For more about auditing courses see Auditing Undergraduate Courses on the Registrar's web site.
