Due to the continuing COVID-19 crisis and the need to reduce density and practice physical distancing, the University at Albany will be suspending informal auditing in ALL courses, in person as well as remote/online, for the 2020-21 academic year. We will revisit our ability to allow course auditors for fall 2021 at the end of the spring 2021 semester.
We are taking every reasonable step to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and families. We thank you for your patience while we continue to serve you in alternate ways.
Please continue to monitor our COVID-19 information web page, which contains all communications sent to our University community, as well as regular updates.
