Registration Refund Periods
Information regarding tuition due dates, late fees and refund periods can be found on the Treasurer's Office website.

 

Audit Grade Option.  The notation AU appears on the student's record when he or she enrolls in a course for audit.  AU is not a grade and no credit is granted.  An auditor is not required to complete assignments or tests, nor is the instructor required to grade any of the student's work in the course.  Audits can not be declared online.  Students must complete a course request form, specifically requesting the grade mode be changed from a letter grade to an audit.  The course request form must be submitted to Rocket Solution Central by the 15th calendar day of the term to declare this option. A student auditing a course pays the same as for a course being taken for credit.  Financial Aid does not pay for audited courses.

Course registrations after the end of the on-line add period through the 15th day of the term (prorated for summer) will require signatures of the course instructor.  Course registrations after the 15th day will require signatures of both the course instructor and the Dean or Designee of the student's college.

Additional Parts of Term exist that are applicable to specific programs.

MD level students should refer to the schedules listed on the MD curriculum pages on MD web site (click here).
