Senior Audits

The Senior Audit program is designed for adults 60 years or older who have resided in Ohio for at least 1 year. The term audit indicates that the student is taking a UC course without receiving any credit for having taken the course.

Under certain conditions, senior adults may audit courses at the University of Cincinnati free of cost.


How to sign up for a course as a Senior Audit student

Step 1: Complete a Basic Data Form.

Step 2: Submit the form in one of the following ways:

Fax: 513-556-5708

Mail: Office of the Registrar
        University of Cincinnati
        PO Box 210060
        Cincinnati, OH 45221-0060

In person: One Stop Student Services Center (2nd floor of University Pavilion). See driving directions to University Pavilion.

Step 3: On the day the course starts, check to determine if the course is still open. If the course appears available, complete an Add/Drop form. The instructor MUST SIGN the completed Add/Drop form.

Note: The decision to grant permission is at the discretion of the professor and is largely decided on the availability of open seats and the appropriateness of the student for the course. Thus, it is advised for student to pick potential courses and substitutes in case the course is already filled.

Step 4: Once the add/drop slip is signed by the instructor, the student must deliver the form to the One Stop Student Service Center (see location above) in order to be enrolled in the course.
