Auditing a class

Working adults and members of the community can attend Ancilla classes without earning a grade by auditing a class. Auditing means you take part in a course but you are not earning college credit for the experience and knowledge you gain. You can audit a class for $160 per credit hour plus the cost of books. (You cannot audit Nursing courses at Ancilla College.)
