Auditing a Course

Auditing a course allows a student to take a course while receiving neither a grade nor credit. A student who audits a course does so for the purposes of self-enrichment and academic exploration. Students register to audit a course through the established registration procedures.

Audit Registration Instructions

Below you will find the different types of audits that are permitted at Finger Lakes Community College and the Audit Registration Process.


Past FLCC graduates who make a contribution through the Alumni Association are permitted to take one course free of tuition, examination, grading or credit. This auditing privilege is restricted to courses that are offered for college credit. Any materials or supplies that are needed for class and that are not covered by normal tuition will be the responsibility of the person auditing the class. (This includes text books, lab supplies or special course related fees).

Please visit the Alumni Association web page and select Alumni Association Membership to review information about this benefit. To be eligible for an Alumni Audit, your registration form must include a contribution certificate. Contact the Alumni Association at (585)785-1454 or email alumni@flcc.edu for more information about contributing. Please Note: Contributing to the Alumni Association does not guarantee an audit of a specific course. The auditing option is based on a space available basis.
