    Auditing Courses

    Enrollees may register as auditors if approval is granted by the course instructor and, for admitted students, the departmental adviser. Registration for (or a change in registration to) 0 semester hours must be made. The mark of "R" (registered) will be assigned if the student's attendance and performance are satisfactory; if they are unsatisfactory, the mark of "W" (withdrawn) will be assigned. Courses completed with a mark of "R" will not meet any college requirements and will carry no credit toward graduation. Auditing may not be used as a second-grade-only option. Requests for audit registration must be made by the appropriate academic deadline. You will pay fees for auditing a course according to the number of semester hours for which the course is offered.

    The AART will not award continuing education credits for audited courses.

    Continuing Education Credits

    The ARRT awards 16 category A CE credits per semester hour for each of the following courses. A grade of "C" or better in the course(s) is required to obtain this credit. Select for information on how to receive this credit. If you are audited it will be necessary for you to send a copy of your transcript to the ARRT for proof of attendance.
