Auditors

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 and the instructor. Registration for audited courses begins the first day of classes for a given semester and ends on the last day of late registration.

Auditors Requiring a Record of Enrollment

Current UNCG Students

A currently enrolled UNCG student may audit a course upon the written approval of the instructor and must register officially for the course. A full-time UNCG undergraduate student (registered for 12 or more hours) may audit one course per semester without an additional fee. A part-time UNCG undergraduate student (registered for fewer than 12 hours) 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 University Registrar's Office or The Graduate School. A fee equal to in-state or out-of-state tuition rates is charged for each course audited (see tuition table and auditing fees).

Registration for audited courses begins the first day of classes for any given semester and ends on the last day of late registration. Fees are payable in full at the time of enrollment.

Continual Learning 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 a Visiting Auditor form from the Division of Continual Learning, Becher-Weaver Building, 915 Northridge Street, 336/315-7044 or 1-866-334-CALL. 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 $50 for each course (no record of enrollment is provided and no computer access is available).

Only courses approved by academic departments are open to auditors. To audit a 600- or 700-level course, a visiting auditor must hold a bachelor’s degree. Visiting auditors are permitted in lecture courses when space is available with the written approval of the department head or the instructor teaching the course. Persons may register as visiting auditors beginning the first day of classes for any given semester.
