An enrolled student can audit a course under the following conditions. The student must first receive the written approval of the course director and the Department Chair/Program Director/Division Director or Head. Once these approvals have been acquired and received by the Registrar, the student is registered for the course as an auditor and the student's name appears on the course roster. Students auditing courses are expected to attend class. An auditing student may be administratively withdrawn from a course when, in the judgment of the instructor and Department Chair/Program Director/Division Director or Head, the attendance record justifies such action. Academic credit is not issued to audited courses, and the possibility does not exist to change the course status from audit to full credit.

Enrolled Midwestern University students are charged 25% of the tuition costs to audit a course.
