Auditing Courses


Students who wish to audit a course must complete an Audit Agreement form, have it signed by the course instructor and submit the Audit Agreement to Registration Services at any CPCC campus within the date ranges below:

  • During the first 4 weeks of a 16-week term (28 calendar days including the first day of the term)
  • During the first 3 weeks of an 12-week term (21 calendar days including the first day of the term)
  • During the first 2 weeks of an 8-week term (14 calendar days including the first day of the term)
  • During the first week of a 4-week term (7 calendar days including the first day of the term)

Registration procedures and fees for an audited class are the same as those for regular and non-credit enrollment. Certain courses, however, may be designated as inappropriate for audit. Non-credit courses may not be audited without permission from the Dean of Corporate and Continuing Education. No student will be allowed to change from a credit to an audit designation after the audit deadline. No student will be allowed to change from an audit to a credit designation.  

The hours of an audited course will be counted as part of a student’s load and will be subject to overload restrictions. A student may audit a course only once and all those doing so must adhere to the instructor’s classroom policies. A record of the audit will be entered on the student’s transcript as "AU". The "AU" carries no college credit and will not be converted to a letter grade. Audited courses are not covered by financial aid or veterans affairs.
