What does it mean to audit a course?
Auditing a class means that you are attending the class on a non-academic credit basis. No Credit is awarded for audit courses and a default grade of L is awarded at the end.

Will I still owe tuition and fees if I audit a course?
Yes, Students who audit a course are responsible for the same tuition and fees as if they were taking the class for credit.
Can I use financial aid to cover the cost of my audit course?
No, Audited classes are not eligible for financial aid.
What if I want to drop or withdraw from an audited course? Are there any refunds?
Audited classes follow the same procedure and deadlines as their credit counterparts and the same Drop Refund Policy.
How to Drop a Course
What does "drop" mean?
A drop can occur before you start your course or during the early part of a term. The period of time in which you can drop depends on the length of the term. If you drop your course before the start of the term you will receive a 100% refund of your tuition and fees. However, if you drop after the term has started, you will receive an 80% refund of charges. See the student handbook for more information.

How to Withdraw from a Course
What does "Withdraw" mean?
A withdraw occurs after the drop period ends and there is no refund of tuition or fees. With a withdrawal, a W notation will appear on your grade report and transcript. The last day to withdraw will depend on when your class starts. See the student handbook for more information.
What is "Medical Withdraw"?
A medical withdrawal is defined as a withdrawal from courses for medical reasons. While often this results in a withdrawal from all courses, the Director of Disability Resources and Services in consultation with the student's physician, may determine a student's ability to maintain some courses while withdrawing from others (for example, a student with a broken leg may need to withdraw from a HPE course but could maintain other courses not requiring physical activity; or a student may need to withdraw from courses on campus due to a medical condition but may be able to maintain online learning courses).
Medical withdrawals received before the end of the drop period will result in a drop of courses (no entry on the student's transcript). Medical withdrawals received after the drop deadline until the last day of classes will result in course entries with a "W" grade(s). See the student handbook for more information.
