How do I audit a course if I am not a student at Miami?
If you are not a Miami student but wish to audit a course, you will need to apply to Miami as a non-degree seeking student. Courses may be audited without credit with the consent of the instructor and will not be counted under any rules establishing maximum registration or enrollment status. If you receive approval to audit a course, the instructor may email the Office of the University Registrar at registrar@MiamiOH.edu.
The requirements for auditing a course are established by the instructor and may include active participation by the student. Any instructor may drop an auditing student at any time during the semester if the student is not fulfilling the audit requirements. Full fees are assessed for auditing a course. A course can be changed from credit to audit or audit to credit during the first 60 percent of the course (see the academic calendar).
