Alumni Auditing Courses

Beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year, Nazareth College will be offering a special alumni rate of $100 per undergraduate course (plus a $25 registration fee) to audit select classes. Certain rules and restrictions apply with regard to class selection, availability, and course enrollment, as students taking courses for credit are always given priority. It should also be noted that no credit is earned and no grade is given when auditing and courses may not be used to augment or add to past or future degree programs.
