Courses open to auditors are indicated in the Schedule of Classes. In courses that are open to auditors and special students, the admission of auditors is provisional until the end of the add/drop period, and those 60 and older may audit for free on a space-available basis. Toward the beginning of the semester, auditors should consult with their instructor about the parameters for their participation in the class, which will vary depending on the course and the instructor.
The UW System policy recognizes the instructor's right to admit or exclude auditors. If the instructor admits auditors, the number of auditors who may be admitted is determined by the stated capacity of the course, not by the number of seats in the classroom.
