Students may audit a course if they wish only to attend class without earning credit or receiving an evaluation of academic performance. Audited courses are usually recorded on the student's academic record with a mark of AU; however, a grade of X (meaning "no basis for grade") can be assigned for inadequate attendance since attendance is customary and expected. AU and X marks do not carry credit and are not included when calculating G.P.A.
Audit credits are assessed regular tuition and fees and are subject to the same refund rules as regular credit hours. Audit credits are not counted in determining a student's enrollment status for the purposes of enrollment verification or financial aid. In addition, audited courses do not satisfy degree requirements.
Audit registration is allowed on a space available basis and at the discretion of the instructor. Students may use the audit registration option from the first day of the term through the end of the 7th week by submitting a Special Registration Form, approved by department stamp or instructor signature, to the Registration windows in the lobby of Neuberger Hall.
Senior citizens should consult the Senior Adult Learning Center web site or call 503.725.4739 for information on registering for audit credits.
Oregon University System staff may register to audit a class at no cost by submitting an instructor-approved Special Registration Form to the Registration windows in the lobby of Neuberger Hall. Staff must notify the Office of Business Affairs to have fees removed from their accounts.
