Audit of Courses

With the written permission of the instructor of the course concerned, an individual may sit in a class as an auditor without receiving college credit. The auditor’s name will not be entered on the class roll, and the instructor will not accept any papers, tests, or examinations. Attendance as an auditor may not be made the basis of a claim for credit in a course. Laboratory, skills, and distance education/web technology courses are not available to the auditor.

Students desiring to audit a class which does not have a lab may do so with approval of the instructor and payment of a fee of $25.00 per class.  Audit approval cards are available at the college or department offices during registration. 

Senior citizens 65 years of age or older may audit approved course(s) offered by MSU without payment of a fee if space is available. In order to determine the “space availability,” enrollment by senior citizens will be handled during late registration only. Proof of age is required for the fee waiver (driver’s license, voter registration, birth certificate, etc.).

Vehicle registration is required if vehicles are to be parked on campus streets and/or parking lots.

IMPORTANT:  No record is kept of audit classes and no credit is earned.
