Auditing and Non-credit Instruction

For currently enrolled students

Currently enrolled full-time students may audit a course provided space is available and they receive the instructor's permission. Students interested in auditing a class should present the audit form to the instructor at least a week before the beginning of the class; the audit form will describe the instructor's expectations regarding levels of participation and attendance. All decisions regarding auditing of a class, including continuing participation, rest with the instructor. Students who complete an audited course will receive a grade of "AU" on their transcript but receive no academic credit; courses audited do not count as part of the student's load for veterans' benefits or athletic eligibility. Enrolled students pay the standard overload fee if the audited course brings their Fall or Spring semester load above 18 credits or their Winter or Summer load above 5 credits. All rules regarding add/drop, withdrawals, and administrative withdrawals follow the academic calendar and college policies. Audited courses cannot be converted to credit-bearing classes or retaken for credit.

For part-time and non-degree-seeking students:

All the above regulations apply to part-time and non-degree-seeking students, with the standard per-credit fees applying to any audited course.

C of I full-time staff and graduates:

Full-time staff and graduates of The College of Idaho may audit up to two courses per academic year at no cost provided space is available and they receive the instructor's permission. Graduates interested in auditing classes should first contact the Alumni Office and then complete the audit form before contacting the instructor. All other conditions that apply for enrolled students apply for C of I staff and graduates.
