Auditing Pikes Peak State College Classes

Pikes Peak students may choose to audit classes on a space-available basis if they meet the prerequisite for the course*. By auditing a course, a student may participate in course activities, but will not receive a formal grade, will not complete course assignments or exams, and will not receive academic credit.

Audited courses will not meet the credit hour requirements for financial aid or veteran benefits and are not applied towards degree or certificate completion. Audited courses are not eligible for the College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend.

All audit enrollment is done on a space available basis only.

*Some academic programs are excluded from auditing. The following is a non-exhaustive list of programs that are not eligible for auditing: selective admissions programs (ex. nursing, emergency services administration, physical therapist assistant, etc.), courses with instructor permission requirements (ex. welding, private music lessons, etc.), courses with significant material fees (ex. Culinary arts, automotive, etc.), and lab courses (biology, chemistry, etc.).

4. We will contact you

One week prior to classes starting, enrollment services will process all audit requests and will enroll students into their requested classes if there is space available in the class and the student meets the prerequisite for the course.

You will be notified of your enrollment status after the request is processed.

Should student’s seeking to participate in the veteran’s audit need to be confirmed as either a veteran or a member of the Colorado National Guard, the Department of Military and Veterans Programs will collaborate with Enrollment Services to confirm status.
