Auditing and Senior Passport Program
The Senior Learning Passport Program
The Senior Learning Passport Program is available to individuals who are at least 65 years of age. Senior learners may attend and "sit-in" on undergraduate courses (courses numbered 100 - 499) on a space available basis and with the instructor's permission. Online courses are not available for Passport Learners.
The Learning Passport may be used for up to two (2) classes per semester and is valid for one (1) year from the date of the non-refundable $25 fee payment.
Please complete the Senior Learning Passport Program Form and submit it to the Office of the University Registrar, 105 Eppley. An office employee will contact the instructor for permission.
For more information, contact the UNO Registrar.
Auditing a Course
To audit a course a student must be admitted and eligible to enroll in classes for the term in which they audit. Students may only register to audit a course on or after the first day of the semester. Audit students may not participate in recitation, turn in papers, or take examinations. Academic credit is not awarded for audited courses nor do they apply in counting hours for full- or half-time status. The decision as to whether an online course is auditable resides with the instructor of the course. Foreign language and physical education activity courses cannot be taken on an audit basis.
Audit registration is subject to available class space, requires the written permission of the instructor, and must be done in person at the Office of the University Registration, 105 Eppley Administration Building.
In order to audit courses for graduate credit, students must be admitted to graduate studies. Permission of the adviser and approval of the instructor of the course should be obtained prior to registration.
Audit tuition is one half of the applicable resident undergraduate or graduate tuition rate. The half-price tuition rate for audit courses is available only during the first week of the semester. Audit enrollments are assessed the same student fees as credit enrollments. Likewise, audits are refunded at the same rate as credit enrollments.
Students who register to take a course for credit and change to audit after the first week of class will be required to pay the full applicable tuition rate.
