Registration Options

Consider these types of registration if the circumstances fit.

Course Auditing 1.201

  1. A student seeking to audit a course may enroll on the last day of regular registration through the last business day of the first week of a session. Registration to audit a course is accepted on a space-available basis for 7 days only, beginning the Friday before the week in which a class starts and ending the Friday after.
  2. An auditing student must meet any course prerequisites and will pay the regular tuition rate and required fees.
  3. Audit students are not counted to determine classes cancelled due to low enrollments nor admitted to classes already closed due to maximum enrollment.
  4. An auditing student may not be allowed to take examinations or write papers. Students may retake an audited class for credit in a subsequent semester.

A student seeking a change from credit to audit status or audit to credit status must use the following schedule to determine the allowable time.

Change From Credit to Audit or Audit to Credit

Course Substitution/Waiver

Written permission from the appropriate instructional dean and faculty member to 1) take a course or prerequisite not required in a curriculum and substitute it for one that is required or 2) to waive a course for one that is required. Students securing written permission to substitute a course or prerequisite must place it on file with the Registration and Records Office. Contact Academic & Transfer Advising for more information.

Pass/No Credit Registration

Pass/no credit carries no grade value and does not affect a student's grade point average and academic standing. Students opting for pass/no credit earn college credit for the course if they complete it with a C or better. It appears as a grade of CR.

Eligibility: specific credit courses designated as pass/no credit in the course description 
When accepted: at the time of registration or up to 10 days after the class begins
Requirements: complete pass/no credit forms. Register in person
Cost: current tuition applies
