Auditing Courses

Auditing a course means a student may attend class but will not receive course credit for attendance or work performed. The instructor reserves the right to restrict a student's participation in class assignments, testing, classroom discussion and/or other class activities. Students auditing courses should discuss their audit status with the instructor.

Enrolling for Audit Status

  1. Check the lists of courses below. You may not audit classes listed in the Non-Audit Classes list. Audit by Permission Classes require a Restricted Audit Approval Form, available in each department, signed by the department chair or program coordinator and the dean.
  2. You must wait until after the class has begun to register.
  3. Complete an Audit Request Form in person at any SWIC campus or at the SWIC Scott Air Force Base office.
  4. Pay. Tuition and fees are the same whether auditing a class or taking it for credit.

Restrictions

Status: Once registered, changing status from credit to audit, or vice versa, is not permitted. Closed class cards are not issued to audit status students.

Financial Aid: Audit status in a class does not qualify for financial aid eligibility.

Audited classes cannot be used at a later date for college credit or to fulfill admission or graduation requirements.
