Audit a Class

The audit allows the student to register for a course without grade or credit in order to enrich the college experience. Full-time students, Alumni with Puget Sound degrees, and members of the University of Puget Sound Women's League may audit, on a space available basis, without charge, one class per term, with a maximum of two classes per academic year. This includes the Summer Session. Audit registration coincides with the add period for each term.

Students who do not fit the categories listed above may audit regularly scheduled classes on a space-available basis at one-half the regular tuition fee.   An instructor reserves the right to refuse an auditor.
