About AAS Courses and Community Auditing

Princeton University’s Community Auditing Program (CAP) enables members of the community, high school graduates ages 18 and above,  to audit, or sit in on, University lectures on a non-credit basis for $175 per course unless otherwise noted. On average, 200 classes are available each semester for auditing. No credit or certification is given for CAP classes. However, certified teachers currently working in New Jersey and Au Pairs may obtain written verification for classes they have audited.

The primary mission of the University is to serve as a preeminent educational and research institution for fully enrolled students. Thus, auditors are to be as unobtrusive as possible in the classroom and considerate of the fully enrolled students by doing the following:

  1. Refrain from commenting or asking questions during the class;
  2. Refrain from speaking or emailing the professor unless the professor initiates the communication;
  3. Refrain from entering or exiting the classroom or lecture hall once the class has started;
  4. Sit only in the back rows of the classroom or lecture hall; University students have first priority for seating.
  5. Refrain from purchasing books at the local bookstores or any bookseller until after the second week of classes has ended;
  6. Turn off cell phones and other electronic devices before entering the classroom.
  7. Refrain from inviting professors out to coffee or lunch.
