A person who attends a course without registration or credit but with the permission of the instructor. Permission to audit is a courtesy extended to an individual upon request to the Registrar and involves no fee (for a currently enrolled student), no grade, and no academic record. The person wishing to audit a course must complete a form in the Registrar’s Office and secure the signature of the instructor.
Note: an auditor must have a high school diploma or equivalent. In keeping with the course audit policy, revised in June 2011, some fees may be involved for those other than currently enrolled students and employees. Retired employees, alumni, or current residents of the Pines at Davidson, and their spouses, may be subject to a $25 fee for electronic services, if needed or desired; the course fee for others is $250 in addition to the $25 fee for electronic services.
