Student Records - Audit a Class

Auditing a class at CVCC

Students may attempt a course as an audit student one time. Students may not audit a class for which they have received credit unless justified by a clear benefit connected to a current program of study at CVCC. A change from an auditing status to a credit status (or vice versa) on or after the start date of the class must be approved by the instructor of the class and the  Dean of Student Access, Development, and Success.

Students wishing to audit a course must satisfy all requisite requirements for the course just as do students taking a course for credit.

Students who audit a course will not receive a grade (other than AU) or credit for the course. Credit will not be granted under advanced placement procedures after enrolling in a course as an audit student. Tuition and fees for auditing a course are the same as those for enrolling in a course for credit.

Students who audit a class are required to comply with class attendance policies, complete assignments, and participate in class activities. They are not required to take examinations unless specified by the academic department.

Students should be aware that audited credit hours do not qualify for federal financial aid, VA education benefits, and certain other grants and/or scholarships.
