Point Park allows audits within our courses:

  • To provide for current Point Park Students to explore other academic areas and/or brush-up on particular subjects.


  • Any current Point Park University student, Point Park University alumnus, or community member may sit in on one course per semester if the faculty member has agreed to the audit, the individual meets the required prerequisites, and there is a seat available.

  • There will be a $50 fee per course.

  • No credit will be granted, and there will be no transcript kept of this activity.

  • There is no refund of the $50 fee.

  • The individual will be required to be prepared for the class so as to add to the discussion.

  • No tests, papers, projects, etc. will be required.

  • There will be a maximum of three non-students permitted in any one course.

  • The status may change from a non-credit audit to a regular student at any time during the Schedule Change period by gaining acceptance to Point Park University, enrolling, and paying full tuition and fees.

  • A Non-Transcripted Student Audit identification card will be issued. This permits the individual access to the classroom building and provides the privilege of attending the agreed upon course. No other privileges are granted, including, but not limited to: library use, Point Park University events, and discount tickets.
