Any interested person not affiliated with Vanderbilt as a faculty/staff member may register as an auditor, subject to the approval of the instructor and the school offering the class. Community auditors in high school must be in either their junior or senior year. Please complete the Community Auditor Application. Enrollment in the requested class is subject to the approval of the instructor and the school offering the course. Enrollment is dependent on seat availability at the time the class starts. First-time students will be charged a $100 transcript fee; additional fees may be charged based on the policies of the school offering the course.
Application must be received in the Office of the University Registrar by the application deadline. Community auditors who have not paid the $100 transcript fee will not be allowed to enroll in future semesters.
