Auditing a course is the privilege of being present in the classroom when space is available. No credit is involved, no examinations are required, and no grades are reported. Attendance, preparation, and participation in classroom discussion and activities are at the discretion of the department head and/or instructor. Admission is determined following the close of regular student registration, and registration for audited courses begins the first day of classes for a given semester.
Auditors Requiring a Record of Enrollment
Current UNCG Students
A currently enrolled UNCG student may audit a course upon the written approval of his faculty advisor and the instructor and must register officially for the course. A full-time UNCG student may audit one course per semester without an additional fee. A part-time UNCG student may audit no more than two courses per semester and is charged a $15.00 fee for each audited course.
Persons Not Enrolled at UNCG
Persons not currently enrolled at UNCG who require a record of enrollment in a course as an auditor must follow regular admission procedures through the Undergraduate Admissions Office or the Graduate School, and register through the ViSioNS/Express Registration process. A fee equal to in-state or out-of-state tuition rates is charged for each course audited.
Registration for audited courses begins the first day of classes for any given semester. Fees are payable in full at the time of enrollment.
Visiting Auditors (Persons Not Requiring a Record of Enrollment)
A person not currently enrolled at UNCG who desires to audit a course and who does not require a record of enrollment should secure an application form as a Visiting Auditor from the Division of Continual Learning, 1100 W. Market Street, 336/334-5414 or 1-800-306-9033. Only Visiting Auditors should apply through the Division of Continual Learning; all others must follow regular admission and registration procedures (see previous information).
A Visiting Auditor may audit courses for a fee of $35 for each course (no record of enrollment is provided).
To audit a 600-or 700-level course, a visiting auditor must hold a bachelor's degree. Visiting auditors are admitted to lecture courses when space is available with the written approval of the department head in consultation with the instructor teaching the course. Persons may register as visiting auditors beginning the first day of classes for any given semester.
