Auditing a Course

To audit a course is to participate in a course without receiving credit for the course or having the grade point average affected. Auditing requires consent of the instructor and the appropriate department chair.

During the first two weeks of a semester, if registration for the course has not been closed, a course may be added for audit through regular Add/Drop procedures without a late registration fee charged. Conversely, during the first two weeks of the semester, a course that was audited may be dropped and added for credit with no late registration fee charged.

Fulltime undergraduate students may register as auditors without paying additional fees. Parttime students pay the usual percredit fee. Any refunds will be made only at the student’s request and according to the standard Rhode Island College refund schedules.

Under no circumstances will audited courses be counted for credit toward a degree.
