Course Observation

Exploratory students are able to observe, without officially enrolling in or auditing, courses that demonstrate coursework in various majors. Current options are limited to the College of Liberal Arts and Science majors, with an anticipated expansion into other programs in future terms.

In observing a course, students may see the true nature of more advanced coursework within specific majors. While observing courses, students should not expect to participate in discussion or classroom activities.

Due to exams and empty seats in classrooms, some dates or classes may not be available.
