Guest Auditing

Hundreds of UW-Madison credit courses are available each term on an “audit” (no credit) basis. Auditors sit in on lecture courses and learn from top UW faculty without the obligation of tests or assignments. Wisconsin residents age 60 and older are eligible to audit classes tuition-free as Senior Guest auditors.
