Auditing a Class

Skyline College allows auditing of courses, with the exception of courses in programs that require special preparation and/or program admission on a limited basis. A student may audit a course only under the following circumstances:

  1. The student must have previously enrolled for credit for the maximum number of times allowed for the particular course.
  2. The instructor of record for the course must approve the student’s enrollment as an auditor.
  3. The student must be in good academic standing.
  4. If the course is offered for variable units, the student must enroll for the maximum number of units available.
  5. The student must enroll as an auditor immediately following the published late registration period and pay the auditing fee.

Students who wish to audit a course may enroll the week after the late registration period is concluded, though with the instructor’s permission they are able to attend the course from the first-class meeting. If you would like to audit a course, complete the Audit Course Request available on the Admissions & Records Forms Page
