Academic Policy

Auditing a Course

Courses may be taken on an official audit basis. No credit hours will be earned for the course. The audited course will appear on the official student transcript with a grade of NC. The student must discuss course work expectations with the instructor and it is up to the instructor to approve or not approve the student's request.

  • Courses taken for audit do not apply toward any academic degree and do not count as part of a student's full-time or part-time course load for purposes of financial aid or for loan deferments.
  • The tuition for an audited course is the same as that as for a credit course.
  • Once invoked, the student may not later change back to a letter grade option or receive academic credit for the course.
Students considering this option should discuss it carefully with their academic advisor to see if this is the best choice or if another grading option, such as pass/fail, may be more appropriate.

Schools in some cases do not allow students to register for a class for credit after taking it on an audit basis. Consult your academic unit with any questions.

Students can find the online audit form at https://studentcentral.iupui.edu/register/audit-a-course/index.html or can obtain a copy from their school or division. Completed forms should be returned by the deadline specified in the academic calendar to the Office of the Registrar.
