Auditing

An “auditor” is someone who attends a course without requesting or receiving academic credit. Auditors are not required to do course readings or assignments, to take examinations, or to write required papers. Nor should auditors expect to participate in classroom discussions without an invitation from the instructor.

  • All auditors are required to register for the courses they audit, and registration requires the written permission of the instructor.
  • Full-time students pay no extra fee for auditing beyond the tuition they already are paying for courses taken for credit. However, full-time students can only audit one class per semester.
  • Persons who are not full-time students must pay, at the time of registration, a per-credit hour fee for each audited class.

The current cost to audit a class $70/credit hour.

Please email Andrea Trautwein, Interim Registrar, at atrautwein@lpts.edu to register to audit a class.
