Alumni Audit Registration
Graduates of American University in good financial standing with the university may enroll in one course each fall, spring, and summer semester as alumni auditors. No credit is given for courses taken through this program, and courses will not appear on student transcripts. Alumni who wish to receive credit for courses must register as non-degree students and pay tuition at the prevailing rate. Alumni auditors are expected to follow all university conduct policies.
