Student Identification Cards
New students are issued an identification card at the time of their initial registration. This ID card is required for access to all University services and must be presented on request to University security personnel in University buildings. Replacement ID cards are available upon payment of the requisite fee and proof of registration for the current academic term. The Office of Public Safety issues Student Identification Cards.
Course Load Limitations
In applying the course load limitations, the University counts audited courses as a part of the student’s course load. However, for regulations that require full-time status, audited courses are not counted as part of the course load.
Students who wish to audit a course must have approval from the appropriate instructor or department chairperson. A grade assigned by the instructor for a student auditing a course is “AU.”
