- Take an AUDIT form to the instructor(s) for approval and signature on the first day of class. Instructor approval is largely based on available
space. Once the instructor has signed the AUDIT form, take the form to their department secretary for the required departmental stamp. When both the instructor
signature and department stamp have been obtained, return the AUDIT form to Registration office to register for the course(s). The Registrar's Solution Center is located
in the Student Service Center room 101, the Enrollment Services desk at the Davis Campus or the

For courses that are waitlisted, forms will not be accepted until the second week of the semester, once the waitlist period has ended.
- After you have registered for the course(s), pay the course fee at the Cashier's Office (SC 209-next door to the Admissions Office). Ask them for the "Lifetime Learner Exemption." Where applicable, Lifetime Learners will be charged for any course related fees. All refund dates apply.
Please take a moment to ask the instructor questions in order to determine if this course is right for you. The course(s) will appear on an academic transcript; however, no credits will be issued.

Lifetime Learners may officially withdraw from an audited class according to the deadline defined in the Academic Calendar. Lifetime Learners failing to attend class may be issued a “W” grade at the discretion of the instructor.
