Course Audit Policy
Jefferson Community College believes coursework can be taken for self-enrichment, academic exploration, or reviewing course material. Auditing a course allows anyone to take a class without receiving a grade or credit for that course.
Certain terms are used in this document with specific meaning, as defined in this section.
- Audit is a registration status and designation, denoted N, wherein a student attends a course but will not receive credit nor a grade.
- Registration refers to the procedure by which a student enrolls in course work.
- The census date is the date set by the college, which typically marks the end of the drop/add period and the beginning of the withdrawal period.
Statement of Policy
- The privilege of auditing a course at the College is open to all students.
- Students may only audit a course if space is available after all students taking the course for credit have been admitted to class.
- Enrollment on an audit basis requires approval by the instructor and Department Chair.
- Students must be registered prior to the end of the second week of instruction.
- Evaluation of course work is at the discretion of the instructor.
- Credit status/designation cannot be changed from audit to credit.
- Audit credits do not count towards full-time-status.
- Students are permitted to retake an audited course for credit.
- The Vice President for Academic Affairs is responsible for overseeing this policy.
