Auditing a Course

Students are permitted to audit courses at Arkansas State University-Beebe. Audit students will pay the regular fee as indicated under the section on Fees and Expenses. No credit will be awarded for courses audited. The letters "AU" will be recorded in the grade column on the student's permanent record.

Audited courses will be counted as part of the stated maximum load for a semester or term. Students have until the published deadline each term to declare audit for a course. For the exact audit declaration date, please refer to the current university calendar.

Auditing students are expected to meet all requirements for a course (including attendance) other than taking examinations and completing formal written papers. Students not completing these requirements may be dropped from the course with a "W" at the discretion of the instructor. The names of those persons registered to audit a course will appear on the class roster, and at the end of the grading period the instructor will determine whether the audit designation should be entered on the student's permanent record or whether a "W" should be entered instead. Some restrictions may apply.
