Consider these types of registration if the circumstances fit.
Course Auditing 1.201
- Registration to audit a course must occur in person in the registration office. Registration to audit a course is accepted at the time of registration on a space-available basis through the drop grace period. Please see http://www.elgin.edu/withdraw for the drop grace period dates by course section and Administrative Procedure 1.202 Schedule Changes and Course Withdrawals for more information.
- An auditing student must meet any course prerequisites and will pay the regular tuition rate and required fees. Audited courses are not eligible for financial aid, do not apply to academic load and do not result in credit earned for having completed the class.
- An auditing student is not obligated to take examinations or write papers. However, it is the student’s responsibility to inform the instructor during the drop grace period if they are choosing to take examinations or write papers. Students may retake an audited class for credit in a subsequent semester.
If a student chooses to change from credit to audit status or audit to credit status, they must do so within the drop grace period.
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.

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
