Grades for all sessions that end by August 2 will be processed and available on August 7, and will be posted on the Web at MyInfo.
Transcripts of summer work can be processed beginning August 9. Students who want official transcripts sent to another institution or to their place of employment need to request an official transcript to be sent after their grade is posted. For more information visit the Registrar’s Transcript Request page.
A student who attends a class without being properly registered for it will not receive credit.
Registered students may, with the permission of the instructor, enroll in a course as auditors and earn zero credit. No grade will be given, and such a course may not be challenged at a later date for credit. Students must declare their intent to audit by the third class session. Auditors pay the same fees as students enrolled for credit.
- Non-Matriculated Student (Listener)
Any adult not regularly enrolled may, with the permission of the instructor, register for a non-laboratory class. Application forms for non-matriculated enrollment are obtained from the Registrar's Office, and the Registrar reviews the completed application for compliance. Payment is required upon approval at the rate charged a regularly enrolled in-state student. A listener may not participate in class discussions or take examinations.
