Auditing Courses

Auditing Classes

To qualify as an auditor for fall or spring semester, a student must be 21 years of age or older or approved by the registrar. Auditors may not be registered for any other University of Colorado courses during the time they are auditing and are not eligible to audit courses if they are under suspension from the university or have outstanding financial obligations to the university. The registrar's office does not keep any record of courses audited; therefore, credit for these courses cannot be established. Auditors may attend as many courses as they wish (except those courses with laboratories or where special equipment is used), provided they have received permission from each instructor.

An auditor's card is issued after classes begin. This card should be presented to the instructor. Auditors, whether resident or nonresident, pay 3 semester hours of resident tuition for all audited courses during the fall or spring semester for class instruction and library privileges only. Auditors do not receive student parking privileges and are not eligible for other student services.

For more information, contact the Bursar's Office.

Senior Citizens Program

Senior citizens may take any course listed in the Course Catalog except:

  • courses which require laboratory or special equipment use,
  • computer courses,
  • courses offered through the Division of Extended Studies.

Acceptance in class will be determined by the instructor based on space availability, and the previous level of education obtained by the senior citizen student. There is no limit to the number of courses a senior citizen may take.
