Current Pratt students and Pratt alumni may audit regular Pratt courses. Students receive no credit or grade for an audit course. The audit application is available for download.

Current Students

If you are a current Pratt student and wish to audit a course, you must take the following steps:

  1. Get the course approved on your academic worksheet by your Academic Advisor.
  2. Obtain permission from the course's department Chairperson to audit the course.
  3. Obtain permission from the course's faculty member to audit the course. The faculty member must also provide a brief description of the amount of work you'll be expected to do as an auditing student.
  4. Turn the form in to the Office of the Registrar.

Non-degree seeking students who wish to audit must also fill out the Non-matriculated Student Application. All paperwork must be turned in to the Office of the Registrar by the end of the add/drop period in a semester. You will receive a grade of "AUD" for an audited course, which confers no credit and does not affect your GPA. All attempts to receive credit/grades for a course you audited will be denied. The cost to audit a course is 50% of the regular tuition costs. Students cannot use an audit course to bump them from part-time to full-time status, as audit courses confer no credits.

Alumni

If you are an alum of Pratt Institute and wish to audit a course, you must take the following steps:

  1. Obtain permission from the course's department Chairperson to audit the course.
  2. Obtain permission from the course's faculty member to audit the course. The faculty member must also provide a brief description of the amount of work you'll be expected to do as an auditing student.
  3. Turn the form in to the Office of the Registrar.

All paperwork must be turned in to the Office of the Registrar by the end of the add/drop period in a semester. You will receive a grade of "AUD" for an audited course, which confers no credit or GPA. All attempts to receive credit for a course you audited will be denied. The cost to audit a course is 50% of the regular tuition costs, with an additional 10% off as an alumni discount. You will still be responsible for all academic and health fees, which are not covered by your alumni discount.

If you are an alum of Pratt and want to take courses through the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, you may register yourself on their website through the Instant Enrollment process. Instant Enrollment will recognize your status as an alum when you register and automatically apply your 10% discount to the tuition costs. You will still be responsible for application and lab fees.

Employees of Pratt: Please note that tuition remission does not apply to courses you audit.

Alumni and non-matriculated students who do not have access to campus buildings or cannot otherwise obtain chair and faculty signatures on forms may mail or email their application materials to Sabrina Coles for signatures. If you have any further questions, contact Sabrina Coles in the Office of the Registrar at 718.399.4573 or send an email to scoles@pratt.edu.
