Auditing

Ministers and others who wish to audit courses may do so by obtaining the permission of the instructor and paying the auditor's fee and registration fee. Auditing forms may be obtained in the Registrar’s Office. The level of participation required of auditors is determined by the individual faculty member or instructor. Ordinarily, auditors are not admitted to courses, such as language courses, that require a great deal of reviewed work. The final decision, however, rests with the instructor. No credit for this work is given, nor are transcripts issued. Arrangements to audit must be made no later than the last day to drop/add classes each semester (see the Academic Calendar for dates).

The auditing process is administered through the Registrar's Office, which can be contacted at registrar@hds.harvard.edu or 617.495.5760.
