Auditing a class

A few guidelines regarding auditing a class.

In order to audit a class in an undergraduate level course follow these steps:
2. Fill out the form from the link and drop it off at the admissions office, which is located at Mellencamp Hall, Room 212.
3. If the form is approved by the admissions office, the class will appear in your PAWS once the paperwork is completed by the Admissions office.

Note: this method is for audit students only. 

Any non-degree seeking student or other individual who wishes to participate in a class at UWM without earning credit or pursuing a program should contact the UWM Admissions Office by phone number at 414-229-2222 or email at The following link provides more information regarding the Admissions Office

Non-degree seeking students interested in graduate level course auditing can either look up specific courses in the Schedule of Classes, linked below, or should contact the UWM Graduate Program Administration at 414-229-6569  or via email at

Auditors should discuss course work and attendance requirements with the instructor during the first week of class. Auditors should contact their professor regarding any concerns with prerequisites as professors can add students to a class regardless of prerequisites being met or not.

Classes that require instructor consent to audit or never can be taken for audit are marked in the Schedule of Classes.

Course auditing is generally not permitted during UWinteriM.

Auditors should contact their professor regarding any concerns with prerequisites as professors have the power to add students to a class, regardless of prerequisites being met.

Auditors of any class held in the Klotsche Center and Pavilion are permitted to use the Klotsche Center and Pavilion facilities by enrolling into an RSF Auditing Membership (a lab fee of $75 is required for all classes). Any auditor, dissertator, off-campus student who has not paid the mandatory student fee must do so in the Bursar Office prior to using the Klotsche Center or Pavilion facilities.
