Anyone who wants to simply attend a course at UNC Greensboro for no credit are welcome to participate as an auditor. Auditors can participate in courses when space is available and with the approval of the department head and/or the instructor. No credit is involved, no examinations are required, and no grades are reported. Course assignments may be optional, depending on the instructor’s preference.

Keep in mind, permission to audit in no way constitutes admission to UNCG. No formal record of participation as a Visiting Auditor will be maintained, and auditors also do not have access to the Kaplan Center for Wellness, Jackson Library, or campus computer labs.

More information about auditing is available in the University Catalog.
