Class Auditing Guidelines

Please be aware of the following guidelines if you wish to audit classes.

Current USU Students

Admitted students who wish to audit a class must register as auditors. Auditing is dependent on space, resource availability, and instructor approval. No credit or grade points will be granted. The regular tuition and course fees will be assessed. At no future time may students request or receive credit for the audited course by any other means than by officially registering for the course and doing the required work. Audit requests, approved by the instructor, must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office and tuition and fees must be paid before class attendance is permitted. Students are not permitted to register as auditors during Early Registration.

Utah Resident's 62 Years of Age and Older

House bill 60 (1977) permits Utah Residents 62 years of age or older to audit university classes. Classes which are full at the time of an audit request are unavailable. Credit seeking, full-tuition paying students have first priority in the registration process. A flat fee of $10 per semester, plus any course fees or special fees that may be attached to classes is charged for House Bill 60 (1977) registration.
