Auditing a Course

Any student wishing to earn credit for a course offered at Dartmouth must elect the course for a term in which he or she will be registered (having the enrollment pattern letter R or O), paying tuition, and actually performing in that term the full normal work of the course. Accordingly, it is not permissible for a student to do the work of a course when not registered and then elect it for credit later when officially registered.

With the permission of the instructor, a student may choose to audit a course instead of electing it for credit. The student should not expect to participate in class discussion or laboratory work, or expect the instructor to read or grade any work the student undertakes. No formal record is kept concerning courses audited; the student may not call on the instructor to write letters concerning his or her accomplishment or suggesting the quality of performance.
