Students who do not want to earn college credit for a course or have taken a course before and received a grade of "C" or better may audit a course with approval of the instructor or Department Chair. College preparatory courses may not be audited. Students must meet all requisites and placement standings when auditing a course. The last day to audit a course is the last day of the schedule adjustment period or designated Add/Drop date. An audit status may not revert back to a grade status after the end of the schedule adjustment period. Credit courses and audited courses are assessed the same tuition and fees. Tuition and fees for audited courses are not covered by a third party such as Financial Aid, Scholarships, Veteran's Benefits, etc. and are the students' responsibility. Students who audit a course will receive a grade of "X" on their official student record and will not be given credit for the course. The grade will not be calculated into the grade point average. An audited course is not counted or used when calculating GPA, academic standing, graduation requirements, veteran's benefits or other financial aid eligibility or for certifying enrollment for outside agencies. Students may repeat an audited course for credit at a later date as long as it does not violate any other Daytona State College policies or regulations.
