This procedure asserts that students may opt to audit a class (i.e. for no credit,) and describes the process by which a class may be audited and the restrictions on changing to a credit option.


Auditing a class will allow students to take a class without receiving academic credit. A transcript notation of "U" will appear on the official Lane transcript, and it will not be factored into the GPA calculation.

A student who wants to audit a class must pay regular tuition rates and may indicate that option when registering through myLane as a schedule change during the first eight weeks of the term.

Changes from audit to credit must be processed within the same time period, and may require additional payment for out-of-state and international students.

Students who choose audit and wish to change to credit may find that the instructor has no basis for making a grade determination. The instructor has no obligation to provide additional instruction, tests, etc., to accommodate a grade request.

Audit is a student option and may not be awarded by an instructor.
