Auditing a Course

The cost to audit is the same as for a credit course. The student must apply for admission, enroll in the course, and obtain a "Permit to Audit" from the Registrar's Office. The signatures of the instructor as well as the Dean must be obtained.

The signed "Permit to Audit" must be returned to the Registrar's Office by the end of the second week of classes (for fall and spring semesters) or the end of the first week of classes (for summer semester). No change from audit to credit or from credit to audit may be made after the second week of classes (for full terms).

Students with Disabilities

Accommodations for students with disabilities are made on an individual basis based on the student's current documentation. If you need services or would like more information, please contact the  Coordinator of Student Disability Services  at   417-659-3725 in the Student Success Center.
