Auditing a Course

Auditing a course is usually done for academic exploration and self-enrichment.

Permission to audit a course entitles the student to attend class but not to hand in papers, take part in discussion, or receive evaluations. An auditor does not receive University credit for the course audited. The audited course will not appear on the student's transcript.

A law student may not audit a law course.

A University student who wishes to audit a course should obtain a Class Auditor Permit from the Texas One Stop and secure the consent of the course instructor and the student’s dean. A nonstudent must obtain the Class Auditor Permit from the Texas One Stop and the consent of the instructor. Nonstudents under the age of 65 are charged an audit fee of $20 a course.

Auditors are permitted only when space is available. An instructor or dean may refuse any request to audit a course. Nothing in these rules prohibits an instructor from permitting guests and visitors in a class.
