Auditing Classes

Students who are interested in observing a class but do not want to receive academic credit/grade may audit "lecture type" courses only.

Please be advised: Auditing is allowed only when there is space available in "lecture type" undergraduate classes. "Lecture type" classes are those where students can observe the delivered lecture of material by the professor. "Interactive type" classes (e.g. Language, Art, Drama, Math) are NOT open for audit through the Non-Degree seeking program.

Audit students receive no credit, do not prepare written assignments or take examinations, are not eligible for residence in campus residence halls, and do not receive student privileges except for the use of the library. No entries are made on the permanent academic record for audited courses.

Audit students must understand that in requesting to audit a credit course they will:

  • Not receive credit for the course
  • Have no record of my having taken the course
  • Have no grade assigned to their for the course
  • Not have their course work reviewed or take any exams
  • Not be able to get credit for this course at a later date
  • Not be eligible for a refund

 Please Note: The School of Business does not allow students to audit their classes.

Step 1: Email

If you are interested in auditing a class, email the specific class and section. The non-degree office (if class is eligible for audit) will seek necessary permission.

NOTE: Please allow at least 5 working days before the first day of the semester.

Step 2: Make Payment and Complete Forms

Once your class is approved you will receive an email to set up an appointment to:

  • Complete Audit Application
  • Make payment (Audit Fee Schedule) - Non-degree office will provide necessary paper work for student to make payment in person at the Cashier's Office in Ashe. Please make check payable to the University of Miami.
