Class Audit Policy
SOURCE: Office of the Assistant Chancellor for Administrative Affairs
The academic fee charge for individuals who register for only
non-credit, audit-type attendance of credit classes shall be:
Wisconsin Residents - 30% of the normal per credit academic fee
Nonresidents - 50% of the normal per credit academic fee.
Audit fees shall be removed for all disabled Wisconsin residents
who are receiving federal old age survivors and disability insurance benefits
(OASDI) under 42 USC 401 to 433.
Subject to the institution's nonresident tuition remission authorization
the chancellor may waive the nonresident portion of the per credit charge
The ability of a person to register only for non-credit audit-type attendance
is subject to these understandings:
that there be no additional classroom/laboratory space requirements or
increased instructional costs resulting from the implementation of this
that the approval of the faculty member in charge of the class must be
obtained by the auditor;
that auditors receive only provisional permission to attend classes until
course registration is completed at the end of the add/drop period;
that any special costs for course instruction other than normal tuition
charges be assessed auditors availing themselves of this opportunity;
that a student who opts to enroll on an auditor basis under this policy
may not change to a credit basis during the term of enrollment;
that students who later seek credit by university examination for a course
that they have audited must be enrolled in the university at the time the
examination is taken and are subject to appropriate tuition charge and
special course fees;
that the UW System's general policy on the refund of academic fees will
apply to audit fees;
access for individual who are auditors-only will be limited to the library
and non-segregated fee funded activities of the student union. A special
identification card would be issued the auditor permitting such access.
NO FEE SHALL BE CHARGED FOR SUCH ACCESS. Except for library and non-segregated
fee funded activities of the student union, auditors-only shall not be
afforded any preferential access to university facilities which is not
afforded to the general public.
that Regent, university and student government regulation applying to students
apply equally to audit enrollees;
that the universities may determine which credit classes are open to auditors
under the terms of this policy.
The ability of degree-seeking students to audit classes is subject
to the academic policies of the institution. The normal per-credit tuition
will be assessed audit credits until the degree and audit credits equal
the plateau where academic fees are level. When the combination of degree
and audit credits exceeds the full-time credit plateau additional fees
shall be assessed.
Subject to the institution's nonresident tuition remission authorization,
the chancellor may waive the nonresident portion of the per-credit charge
