Official Audit (Non-RU Students Only)
A Non-RU student may audit a course by entering an “N” in the “Credit Hour Prefix” column on the registration form.  The student is expected to complete all the course work, except the final exam, and will be graded “S” or “U.”  The course and grade appear on the student’s transcript.  Students opting for audit registration must choose this option prior to the beginning of the course and may not change audit status once the course has begun.  This option is available to Non-RU students only, and those students are still required to pay the regular tuition and student fees.

Pass/No Credit ( Rutgers University Student Only)
A grade of Pass (equivalent to grades of A, B+, B, C+, and C) or No Credit (equivalent to grades of D and F) is assigned to a student who has registered for his or her course on that basis.  This option is open only to juniors and seniors in good academic standing.  No more than one course may be taken on a Pass/No Credit basis during the Summer Session, and credit is not allowed for more than four courses.  This option may be used for electives only; it may not be used for courses required in the major or for courses used to satisfy the general curriculum requirements.  Non-RU students are not permitted to take courses on a P/NC (Pass/No Credit) basis.  Only Rutgers University students may take courses on a P/NC basis, when such registration is in accord with the regulations of the student’s college and the faculty offering the course. Request for P/NC grading must be made at the time of registration by inserting the symbol P or NC in the “credit hour prefix” column on the registration form. This option may not be made or changed after registration is completed.
