Audit for Enrichment

The Audit for Enrichment (AFE) program is designed for adults who have achieved at least a high school education who are interested in not-for-credit learning experiences for personal or professional enrichment. This program is available during the fall, spring, and summer terms.

Individuals must submit an application to this program no later than two (2) weeks before the start of the term. First-time applicants will be asked to provide proof of highest educational degree received (i.e. transcript or diploma). The college and/or departments of instruction will review your application and you will be notified of your acceptance into the program by the Office of Registration and Records. Once you have been approved for AFE registrations, you do not need to submit the education documents again, but must continue to request coursework at least two (2) weeks in advance of the term for review and specific course approval.

After your application has been approved, Registration and Records will register you on the first day of the term if there is still a seat available in the class. The AFE fee ($125 per credit hour) together with all additional course-related fees are payable at the time of registration and are not refundable. Only the cancellation of the course by the University would constitute reason for a refund of the AFE fee.

Courses taken in this program will be designated as an “audit” on an official transcript and may not be changed to “credit” enrollment later in the term.
