2. Secure signatures from the Vice President of Instruction and each instructor for the course(s) to be audited.
3. Return the "Request to Audit a Course" form to the Admissions Office.

5. After being registered in the course, contact the Business Office to make payment in full.
Note: Audited courses are designated on the student's transcript with a notation of "AU" in the grade column.
