Community Auditing Program

Princeton University's Community Auditing Program (CAP) enables members of the community, ages 18 and above,  to audit, or sit in on, University lectures on a non-credit basis for $175 per course unless otherwise noted. On average, 200 classes are available each semester for auditing. No credit or certification is given for CAP classes. However, certified teachers currently working in New Jersey may obtain written certification for classes they have audited.

Please Note: In order to register you must have an active account in our database. All accounts are activated upon a one-time, in-person verification of residence and age in our offices at 4 Mercer Street. A driver’s license is adequate documentation to verify both residency and age.

Office Hours are weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm

Please note that new account activations will be processed beginning Monday, December 1, 2014. As part of a revised policy for the fall 2014 semester, we will cease activating new accounts once registration begins. The last day to activate an account for this fall will be Monday, January 12, 2015.
