Trying A Course

Try a Course

There are two options for trying a course in the Liberal Arts Studies program. You may audit a course or take a course as an unclassified student. Each option has its advantages.

Audit a Course

Students not enrolled in the Liberal Arts Studies program may audit up to two Liberal Arts Studies courses if they wish to learn more about the courses and academic expectations of the program. Interested students must apply using the online application and select “unclassified” as the Program of Study. Unclassified applications do not require test scores or letters of recommendation. Please upload a statement indicating the course you are interested in auditing. There is an application fee in the amount of $80 which is payable via credit card through the online system. The fee for auditing the course is at the current university rate.

Students who audit courses are observers and are not required to do the course work; as a result, no course credit is earned. By university regulation, auditors may not register for a course until the first day of classes, subject to the approval of the professor teaching the course.

Take a Course for Credit

Students who wish to take a graduate-level course, but are not ready to pursue a graduate degree should apply using the online application and select “Unclassified” as the Program of Study. Unclassified students are eligible to take up to two courses.  Unclassified applications do not require test scores or letters of recommendation.  Please upload a statement indicating the course you are interested in taking and that you are interested in taking it for credit. There is an application fee in the amount of $80 which is payable via credit card through the online system. The tuition for unclassified students is at the current university rate

Unclassified students participate fully in lectures, coursework, and assignments and as a result, earn course credit. This credit may be transferred to the Liberal Arts Studies program when you decide to pursue your degree.
