ALUMNI AUDIT POLICY
- An alumnus/a of any Marymount degree program in good standing may audit a Marymount course. Alumnus/a status is determined by University policy.
- For Marymount alumni currently registered as Marymount students, student status will take precedence, and the individual will not be eligible to audit under this policy.
- The purpose of the alumni course audit program is personal and professional enrichment. Alumni enrolling as auditors may not change to credit-seeking status, and audit courses will not count toward a future degree program.
- Alumni will be eligible to register to audit a course beginning one week prior to the start of classes, where space permits, and not after the late registration deadline (usually one week after classes begin). Fully enrolled students have priority to register for classes up until this time. Some classes may reach capacity prior to the Alumni Course Audit Registration period. If classes are full, alumni will be advised to select another course and/or semester.
- A fee of $330 per course per semester (subject to change), plus any applicable Technology Fees, will be charged and billed by the Student Accounts Office. Please make sure the University has the most up-to-date billing address on your record. Payment instructions will be provided when the bill arrives.
- Audited courses will be noted on your academic transcript upon completing and paying for the course.
- A maximum of two courses per semester may be audited by an alumnus/a.
- Courses with laboratory, studio, or clinical requirements, courses based on the interactive acquisition of skills and other courses with special admissions criteria will not be open to auditors. This is at the discretion of the associate dean. Examples: clinical nursing, education practical, physical therapy, etc.
- Though alumni may use the computer labs to assist them in their course work, paying, degree-seeking students will have first priority in the computer labs if space is limited.
- Alumni may be asked to show identification to have access to the University (i.e., parking, shuttle service, library, computer labs). Alumni should show their Alumni ID Card. If you do not have a card, please contact the alumni office via email or by calling 703-284-1541 and one will be mailed to you.
