Auditing a Course

  • Auditing a course means you are an observer or a “guest” of the instructor.
  • Permission to audit a course is given by the instructor and only when space is available.
  • Auditors do not participate, complete coursework, or contribute to the class.
  • It is the instructor’s discretion and responsibility to add the auditor to Canvas, Zoom or any other teaching platform.
  • Your permission to audit a course can be revoked by the instructor at any time.
  • Auditors will not receive credit for auditing a course, and there will be no registration record or transcript of the audited course.

Students currently enrolled at UT Austin

If you will be enrolled as a student at the time of course follow these steps:

  1. Using the Class Auditor Permit, speak with the instructor of the course to receive permission to audit the course. Digital signatures are accepted.
  2. Once approval is received, send the signed audit permit to your Dean’s Office for permission to audit. If approved, your college will send the approved Class Auditor Permit to the Registrar’s Office Student Records for record keeping only. There is no registration record or transcript for someone auditing a course. Once you have received Dean’s approval you are approved to audit the course and further communication regarding the course is between you and the instructor.
  3. It is the instructor’s discretion and responsibility to add you as an observer to Canvas or any other web-based platform. This permission will be given only when the class has started.

Non- UT Austin students, under the age of 65

If you will not be enrolled as a student at the time of the course and you are under age 65, follow these steps:

  1. Using the Class Auditor Permit, speak with the instructor of the course to receive permission to audit the course. Digital signatures are accepted.
  2. Once approval is received, take the signed Class Auditor Permit to the Bursar’s Office, located in room 8 of the UT Tower. There you will pay a $20 fee for each course you are planning to audit. If you are unable to physically turn in the form to the Bursar’s office, you can mail the form and payment to: Bursar (Cashier) Services, P.O. Box 7398, Austin, Texas 78713-7398.
  3. Once payment has been made, the Bursar’s Office will send the permit to the Office of the Registrar Student Records for filing only. There is no registration record or transcript for someone auditing a course. After payment has been made, you are approved to audit the course and further communication regarding the course is between you and the instructor.
  4. It is the instructor’s discretion and responsibility to add you as an observer to Canvas or any other web-based platform. This permission will be given only when the class has started.

Instructor Help

If you need to add the auditor to your Canvas course, additional information on how to do so can be found at the following here.  It is recommended that you use the observer role in Canvas, which is better aligned with our auditor policy.

More information about the observer role can be found at the following here.

If you have additional questions or need further assistance with Canvas, the Canvas support team can be contacted at canvas@utlists.utexas.edu
