Auditing Classes

In conformity with California Education Code 76370, and Santa Rosa Junior College Policy 8.1.5, in order to attend classes on a continuous or regular basis, individuals must either enroll as a regular student or register as an auditor. Attending classes with the intent to audit without registering as an auditor is not permitted. Students may audit certain selected classes for a fee of $15.00 per unit plus any additional course costs. Please refer to the schedule of classes for a current list of auditable courses.

The procedures and conditions for auditing a class are as follows:
  1. Courses in which auditing is allowed will be posted each semester in the Admissions, Records & Enrollment Development Office and the online Schedule of Classes. The list of auditable courses is maintained by the Curriculum Office.
  2. Appropriate unit fees, based on Education Code (plus any additional course costs) must be paid.
  3. Students currently enrolled in 10 or more units may audit up to 3 units free of charge.
  4. Auditor status will be allowed only if a student has exhausted repeat possibilities as a regular student in selected classes (See Repeat/Policy Codes in the Schedule of Classes).
  5. Auditors must be eligible for admission to college as regularly enrolled students.
  6. Auditors must meet the course prerequisite.
  7. Instructor must sign an audit card to show approval for student to attend class as an auditor on a space available basis.
  8. Auditors will be allowed to register only after the first census date for the course in order to give priority to students registering for credit. Auditors will not be permitted to attend the course until enrollment is secured after first census. Auditors must submit an Audit Card signed by the instructor to the Office of Admissions, Records & Enrollment Development to secure enrollment.
  9. Auditors may NOT change their status to regular student in the class (or reverse).
  10. Once the auditor fee is paid, it will not be refunded.
  11. Students registered, as auditors only, will not be entitled to the regular student health services (other than emergencies).
  12. No grades can be earned or transcripts maintained.
  13. The instructor and student auditor will agree upon the auditor’s level of participation in the class.
