Course Audit Registration

Registration for Spring 2018 will open on January 8, 2017.

Before you submit your registration to audit a course, be sure to first:

  • Find the course you wish to audit in the schedule of classes. Ensure that you did not choose an excluded course. Online courses are not available to audit.
  • Have the professor of the class sign the permission form (PDF) or obtain an email from the professor that states that you are able to audit the course. You will need to attach this permission form or email along with your online registration form. Filling out the permission form alone is not sufficient to register for a course.


If paying by credit card, you can make your payment online. Otherwise, please make a check out to "The George Washington University" with the course auditor's name in the memo line and send it to:

Attn: Kathleen Sloan
GW Office of Alumni Relations
Alumni Course Audit Program
2100 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Fourth Floor
Washington, DC 20052

After we receive your payment, we will e-mail to you a confirmation that you have completed the process. Following this, it usually takes 5–7 business days before you are officially registered for the class.  

Processing Your Registration

Registration for the Spring 2018 semester will open January 8. Registration processing time takes from 5–7 business days from when forms are submitted starting on the first day of the semester.  You may register during the first three weeks of the semester without a late fee and you can attend classes while your registration is being processed.


If you have any questions about the Alumni Course Audit Program please contact Kathleen Sloan at [email protected].
