Auditing - Senior Citizens
A student may register to audit certain courses at Trent University. Permission of the instructor is required; it is the student’s responsibility to obtain permission from the course instructor to audit. Not all courses can be audited. Courses taken for audit will not count for credit towards the student’s degree program, nor will the student be allowed to write final examinations or receive grades for courses which are audited. Courses which are audited will be recorded on the student’s transcript and the term “AUD” will appear in lieu of a grade. Audit courses are not considered in calculating full-time or part-time status; audit courses will be considered for overload criteria.
Any persons who wish to audit courses pay 50% of the regular tuition fee for regular credit courses. Auditing students do not pay ancillary and levy fees. Seniors auditing a course pay only $200 per half-credit course.
Degree seeking students 65 years and older pay full fees. Seniors in financial need may apply for a student bursary through the Financial Aid Office.
