Consider these types of registration if the circumstances fit.
Course Auditing 1.201
- 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.
- An auditing student must meet any course prerequisites and will pay the regular tuition rate and required fees.
- Audit students are not counted to determine classes cancelled due to low enrollments nor admitted to classes already closed due to maximum enrollment.
- 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.

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.

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
Student Waitlist Registration Procedure
Students may place themselves on a waitlist for a particular section of a particular course until the published payment due date for pre-registered students and will not assess tuition or fees for that class. Placement on a wait list does not guarantee enrollment in a class. Students on waitlists are not registered for the class and will not be allowed to attend the class unless they are subsequently properly enrolled in the course.
Students may be moved from the wait list to the regular class roster, if other students drop the course. It is the student’s responsibility to check their ECC email and schedule to verify they have been placed into the waitlisted class. In these cases, students will need to make arrangements to pay tuition and fees associated with that course prior to the published payment due date for pre-registered classes.
After eligible wait list students are moved into seats made available (on a first-come basis) due to drops for non-payment by pre-registered students, wait lists will be discontinued. Students who were not moved into classes must find alternative courses. Once wait lists are discontinued, students will only be able to register (in person or online) for sections with seats available. After the published payment due date for pre-registered students, students must arrange payment according to the daily drop for non-payment policy. Students who fail to appropriately arrange payment will be dropped according to that policy and their seats will be re-opened for registration.
Students who have enrolled in payment plans, and who subsequently add classes will have all additional tuition and fees added to the payment plan and those charges will be subject to the same terms and conditions as the original payment plan. Students receiving financial aid should consult with their financial aid adivsor to determine if additional charges are covered or if payment arrangements need to be made.
Who is eligible: any student
When accepted: when registering for a class that’s full
