  • Auditors (including senior citizens) must enroll for the course after the first class meeting during the official registration period but before the second class meeting.
  • Not all courses are available to audit. Courses that have met the maximum occupancy cannot be audited. CPD classes are not available to audit.
  • Students must meet all prerequisite and skill level requirements for the course being audited.
  • Financial Aid does not cover the cost to audit a course.
  • Students must purchase the required materials, including books, for the course.
  • Audit students will have access to all buildings services, and technology, including Blackboard and SOS.
  • Audit students must obtain a student ID from the library and a parking permit from the business office.
  • Audited coursework will be posted on the transcript with a grade of AUDIT.
  • Audit students are required to conform to the same conduct in the classroom and on campus as credit students and must comply with the policies, rules, regulations and generally accepted practices of the College (see SJCD Handbook and Code of Conduct).
  • Audit students must pay the same day they register, either in full or by enrolling in a payment plan, if available, at a campus Business Office. Tuition is based on residency status. The General Service Fee will apply to all students as a one time fee per semester.
  • Refunds for dropping an audited course will follow the same schedule as the regular refund schedule. Please see Enrollment Services for assistance in dropping an audit class.
