Students who are admitted to the University of Memphis may register to audit a course
with the prior approval of the instructor and the head of the academic unit or designate.
Students enrolling on an audit basis do not receive academic credit for that course.
Particularly in high-demand courses, academic units should make sure that students
who need these courses for degree credit can be accommodated before they issue permits
for audits. Audits should not be used simply as a vehicle for obtaining access to
laboratory or studio facilities.
Auditors are not required to take examinations and do not receive a regular letter
grade. The student and the instructor should reach a precise agreement as to the extent
and nature of the students participation in the course, including class discussion,
projects, and readings. Students auditing a course will receive "audit" (AU) on the
transcript only if they have attended regularly and participated according to the
prior agreement with the instructor.
A student may not change from a grade point basis to audit or from audit to a grade
point basis after the last day to add classes for that session. Any questions concerning this policy should be referred to the colleges.
Fees for audits will be assessed on the same basis as fees for credit courses.
