Auditing a Course

Main page content

If you intend to audit a course must first register using MyUW, and then go in person to the Office of the Registrar to elect the audit grade option. You may select the audit option through end of the second week of the quarter. Enrollment in courses as an auditor is by consent of the instructor involved and is conditioned on space availability. Permission to audit is ordinarily granted for lecture classes only.

As an auditor, you may not participate in class discussion or laboratory work and your registration may be canceled at the discretion of the instructor. Audited courses are not recorded on your permanent record. To receive credit for an audited course, you must register for the class for credit in a subsequent quarter. Courses audited may not be changed to credit registrations after the second week of the quarter.

Auditors, except ACCESS program students, pay standard tuition and fees and must be regularly admitted and registered in the course. Although credits for audited courses will not be listed on your transcript, they will be included in the billing on the fee statement. Such credits count in the calculation of fees.
