Auditor Etiquette

A friendly reminder: please remember that you are a guest in the class, and should not participate in labs, testing, discussion groups or in presentations as these are activities for tuition-paying students.

Also keep in mind:

  • If you wish to complete assignments, verify that the instructor has time to grade them
    (no academic credit is available)
  • Arrive to class on time
  • Please stay until the end of the class
  • Remember that faculty reserve the right to prevent individual courses from being part of the Senior Auditors Program.
