Auditors are persons whose engagement in a course is limited to observation and listening only; they are not permitted to enroll, participate in class discussions, submit written or oral assignments, or take examinations.  They do not receive academic credit. Auditing is not permitted for undergraduate classes. 

Auditors in permitted classes should be added to the Canvas course site using the Observer role.
