A Graduate Student Spouse registration form should be filled out at the Registrar's Office. The form should be signed by
the instructor teaching the desired course insuring competence of the English language and appropriate prerequisites have
been taken. NOTE: An instructor may refuse to sign the form if the class is full prior to the request, or if the instructor
does not think the individual's background is appropriate.
The individual (hereafter referred to as "the auditor") is entitled to one free audit per semester under the
agreement, provided the spouse is a Graduate Student currently holding a Rensselaer teaching assistantship,
research assistantship, or fellowship.
An auditor may not register for a course until after classes have begun for the term so that matriculating students have first
choice in registering. This form must be completed and returned to the Registrar's Office by the end of the second week
of classes.
Auditing is defined as attending a course without credit for such information as may be derived. Participation in
recitations, discussions, or examinations (or the requirement of such participation) is at the discretion of the instructor. A
permanent record will be maintained of the audit. The only grade given for the audited course is "AU" (Audit).
Auditors must register in the term they wish to audit a course and may not register for credit in the audited course later in
the term.
Fill in the information requested. Take the form to the instructor of the course you wish to audit. If he/she agrees to let
you audit the course, have him/her sign where indicated. Take the form to Registrar’s Office (Academy Hall 2000 Level )
to obtain the necessary signature.
The student is responsible for complying with all University rules and regulations. The academic regulations are listed in
the Catalog.
If there is room in your course and if you agree to allow the student to audit your course, sign where indicated and return
the form to the student.
