Auditing UF Courses

When Can Students Audit a Course?

Auditing courses may be approved on a space-available basis. In addition to paying tuition and fees, students must obtain approvals of the instructor and dean of the college offering the course. Immunizations also are required.

When students and/or Florida residents aged 60 or over audit a course, they do not earn credits or grades. A transcript of audited courses can be produced. Students typically audit courses to further their knowledge of a subject without the requirement of an academic record.

Students auditing a course to complete course requirements should refer to the Grades/Grading Policies in the academic catalog.

Steps to Successfully Audit a Course

  • Complete the audit form.
  • Obtain necessary signatures, following the instructions on the form, and return the form to the Registrar's Office in 222 Criser Hall.
  • Deadline to complete the audit form is the last day of Drop/Add. Select the relevant term for academic dates and deadlines.
  • Proof of immunization may be required before registering.
  • Instructors who want to give Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for audited courses should submit a memo to the Registrar's Office after completion of the course.
  • Students are liable for tuition and fees, which are the same fee rates as courses for credit.

Special Conditions That Apply To Audited Courses

Students who audit a course for continuing education units (CEUs) are advised that CEUs will NOT appear on their transcript, but there will be a listing of the courses taken with AUD in the grade field. The instructor awards CEUs based on an evaluation of the student's participation in the course. One CEU is equivalent to one credit hour.

Senior Citizens (age 60 and over) Who are Florida Residents — Free Course Audits

Senior citizens (aged 60 and over) who are Florida residents are not required to pay tuition or fees when auditing a course. These individuals should complete an Audit form and the Residency Classification form. Bring the completed forms along with a valid State ID to verify your date of birth to 222 Criser Hall by the last day of drop/add.


If you have questions regarding other conditions that apply to audited courses, refer to your college dean's office, which is responsible for advising students of the conditions that apply to auditing a course.
