Auditing a class is an option for students who wish to attend a class for which academic credit is usually issued without receiving credit or a grade. To audit a class, students must register and pay all tuition and fees for that class.
To pursue an audit status a student must:
- Work with the Registration Center, as audits cannot be declared when registering online.
- Declare the intent to audit either when they enroll in the course or up until the published deadline to withdrawal from that course. In the case of declaring an audit after the course starts, authorization is required from the instructor, which can be sent to the Registration Center.
Any student auditing a class may participate as a regularly enrolled student except that no credit or grade are earned by the student. The student’s transcript will show “AUD” for the in place of a grade. Once a student declares their intent to audit, they will not be allowed to switch back to credit earning status.
Audited classes do not affect the Schoolcraft College GPA, but may impact a student’s ability to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) as it relates to Financial Aid. Tuition and fees associated with auditing a class cannot be paid using financial aid funds.
