Auditing a YSPH Course

An auditor is a student who attends a class to acquire knowledge, but not to earn credits or a grade. Audited courses do not count toward the completion of degree requirements, enrollment certification, financial aid eligibility, or loan deferment purposes. Auditors may change their status in a course according to the course change deadlines on the academic calendar. Auditors must attend classes regularly, complete assigned reading, and participate in discussions, but they are excused from examinations and other assignments. If this requirement is not met, the YSPH registrar may, solely upon notice from the instructor of insufficient attendance, delete the course from the student’s record. For a student who elects to audit a course, the letters “AUD” are entered on the transcript in the grade column, and the course does not earn credit.

Auditors are admitted to a course on a space-available basis and with the approval of the instructor. Not all courses are available for auditing, as indicated in course descriptions. Students are limited to no more than two audit courses per term. Students remain responsible for paying the applicable tuition and fees for the course. Courses in the Executive M.P.H. Program are not open to auditors.
