Auditing Courses @ Fredonia

Course auditing privileges are slated to return for Spring 2023. Please review the SUNY Student COVID-19 Vaccine Policy below.

Subject to faculty and department approval, certain academic courses may be audited.

The instructor is under no obligation to assess a course auditor's homework, class contributions, or examinations. The auditor receives no grade for the course, nor is any course transcript generated by The State University of New York at Fredonia. In addition, auditors are not provided certain other university services, such as email, internet access, etc. However, access to FREDLearn is available as needed. Once enrolled, students may not change their enrollment status from audit to credit, or from credit to audit.

All persons who would like to audit a course must obtain and complete a Course Audit Application Form whether a fee is required or not. The completed form must have the signatures of:

  • The course instructor
  • The chair of the department offering the course

Current full-time students, faculty and staff, Fredonia emeriti faculty and staff, and community members 60 years of age and older (with documentation) may audit courses without paying a registration fee. For all others:

  • A non-refundable registration fee of $50.00 will be charged.
  • A parking sticker will be required to park a vehicle on campus ($5.00, from the Office of Student Accounts).
  • A library card will be required to remove circulation materials from the library ($2.00 from Reed Library).

Audit privileges are not available in noncredit courses offered through Extended Learning; nor in any internship, directed study, practicum, online, or international study program/course.

The SUNY Student COVID-19 Vaccine Policy (the “Policy”) remains in effect and requires all students who will have a physical presence on campus to provide evidence of, at minimum, the initial course of COVID vaccinations.  Pursuant to the Policy, students are considered fully vaccinated for the initial course of vaccination: (1) two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two dose COVID-19 vaccine series or (2) two weeks after receiving a single dose COVID-19 vaccine.  Campuses must continue to review medical or religious exemption requests and may designate deadlines by which students should submit any requests for timely review before the semester begins.  For the purposes of this policy, "students" are defined as any individual matriculated or otherwise enrolled full-time or part-time at SUNY Facilities as well as visiting, auditing, exchange, continuing education, and international students taking in-person courses at SUNY.

Proof of vaccination must be sent to the following campus office along with a COPY of the prospective auditor's signed Course Auditing Application.  The ORIGINAL application must be submitted to Extended Learning.
