There is a 12-credit limit for matriculated graduate students.

Some academic courses may be audited. Registered students at the State University of New York at New Paltz, faculty and staff of New Paltz, persons over 60 years of age and Alumnus of SUNY New Paltz may audit courses without paying a registration fee. For all others, a non-refundable registration fee of $50 will be charged. Persons who would like to audit a course must obtain an Audit Form from Records and Registration. The completed form must have the signatures of:

  • The chair of the department offering the course
  • The course instructor
  • Linda Smith, head of Blackboard Technology at New Paltz (CH-H113B)

Forms must be submitted to Records and Registration with the proper signatures and proof of payment of fee.

The audit privilege permits the auditor to attend a course, providing there is room in the course and the necessary approvals have been granted, and to do assignments, but it does not permit the auditor to take examinations in the course or to have his or her work evaluated in any other way. The auditor receives no grade for the course, nor is any record of course attendance kept in Records and Registration. Students may not change their enrollment status from audit to credit, or from credit to audit.

Audit privileges are not ordinarily available in studio, laboratory, performance courses, or courses where class participation of students is of major importance, nor are they available in credit-free courses offered by the institution or in any foreign student program or course. Online courses cannot be audited.
