Auditing courses

What does auditing mean?

An auditor is a student who is taking a course without seeking a grade or credit for the course. Students usually audit courses for self-interest and academic exploration.

The auditing student's participation in courses will be set by the course instructor. In general, if you're auditing a course, you'll be expected to complete all course requirements except the final exam and your transcript will show a statement of audit for the course.

If you choose to audit a course, you will still be assessed regular tuition and mandatory student fees. Read more about auditing courses in the Academic Calendar
