Students Taking Courses for Enrichment (Audit/No Credit)

Students taking courses for Enrichment are expected to read materials assigned and be prepared to participate in class discussions.

Enrichment students are not required to submit assignments, and instructors are not required to read or respond to such assignments.

Enrichment students are subject to the same policies as students taking these courses for credit (see above) with the following exception: they may register up to one week before the first class without incurring a late fee if they have received permission from the instructor and contact the registrar to confirm.
