Auditing Courses

Application forms for Audit Registration are available from the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research or online (69 KB) Excel icon This form must be submitted to the FGSR office for processing.

Graduate students may only request to audit a maximum of one course per semester while registered in a graduate program.

Audit Registration requires the approval of the course instructor, which is not normally given until the last business day before the start of the course. Audit Registration cannot be completed online. Some courses are not open to auditors.

Auditors may attend lectures, but may otherwise participate in classes only to the extent permitted by the instructor. Once registered, students appear on the class list and the audited courses appear on their transcript. Students who formally withdraw or cease attending receive a grade of AW; those who formally withdraw may be eligible for a refund of tuition.
