Registration procedures and fees for an audited class are the same as those for regular credit and non-credit enrollment.



When a student determines that he/she will be unable to complete courses in which he/she is currently enrolled, it is the student’s responsibility to initiate procedures leading to a formal withdrawal in order to avoid a failing grade. To receive a “W” grade, a student must withdraw before the first 35% of the class.

Financial Aid recipients should refer to the financial aid satisfactory progress policy to see if schedule adjustments will affect financial aid.

To find the 35% withdrawal deadline date for your class, check the online syllabus or talk with your instructor.
