University shares knowledge through auditing program

Princeton NJ -- Area residents can take advantage of the rich academic resources available in their own backyard through the Princeton Community Auditing Program.

The University allows individuals who register -- on a non-credit basis -- to attend lectures that are part of the regular course offerings for undergraduate students. In addition, auditors receive course handouts and participate in special receptions and programs. No seminars, precepts, graduate-level classes, labs or class discussions are available for auditing.

While fall semester registration is closed, spring semester registration is scheduled at the Frist Campus Center between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Dec. 11-13. After Dec. 13, it is possible to register by mail. The final deadline for mail-in registration is Jan. 10..

The spring semester auditing fee per course is $75 to cover administrative costs and course materials. Special accommodations regarding the fee will be made in cases of financial hardship.

Although no certification is given upon completion of a Community Auditing Program course, New Jersey teachers who audit classes will receive special documentation for the purposes of satisfying their professional development requirements.

The Community Auditing Program should not be confused with the Program in Continuing Education, which entitles an individual to all privileges given to a fully enrolled student at a cost of $3,270 per class. The Office of Community and State Affairs administers both programs for University and non-University enrollees.

Questions about auditing should be directed to the Community Auditing Program office, located at 201 Frist Campus Center. The office is open from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; the phone number is 258-0202; the e-mail address is <>; and the Web site is <cap>.
