Audit Option

Students may take some University level courses on an audit basis.

University Studies, VIU Powell RiverAudit students:

  • attend classes
  • complete reading assignments
  • do not have to participate in examinations
  • however, students may ask an instructor for evaluation on assignments or tests

Audit students will receive an “AUD” on their transcripts. No grade will be given; therefore, an audited course will not be used to calculate a student's GPA. Having begun a course, students have eight weeks within which to change standing from audit to credit, or credit to audit. Students must receive permission of the instructor(s) to make the change and must have a Student Registration Change form, available from the Registration Centre, signed by the instructor(s).
