6.13 Auditing a Course

Audit students register in a course but do not receive credit. Audit students receive the same tutorial support, have access to all other services provided to Athabasca University students, and pay the same fees. As an audit student, you are exempt from writing examinations and a final grade is not provided. When you register, please indicate whether it is your intention to audit the course.

6.13.1 Changing Status

If you are auditing a course and wish to change to credit status, you must apply in writing to the Office of the Registrar before the mid-point of the course contract date.

If you are taking a course for credit and you have not yet written any examinations, you may also change from credit to audit status. You must do so before the mid-point of your course contract date, and you must apply in writing to the Office of the Registrar.
