Special Reading Courses
A Special Reading Course (SRC) allows a student to work with a consortium instructor on a topic that is not available via the regular course schedule or to upgrade a lower level course to a higher-level course with additional work required. The student and the instructor negotiate and must agree on the details of the course or upgrade (meeting times, readings, papers, projects, exams, etc.). The student should be aware that the instructor receives no additional compensation for offering a SRC.
Therefore, a student should not ask a professor to offer a SRC for a class that is offered regularly, and while core faculty are not obligated to offer SRCs, those who choose to do so are advised to take on no more than two SRCs per semester.
- Auditing a course generally translates to “sitting in” on a course for no credit. Students can audit most GTU consortium courses during the Fall, Intersession, and Spring semesters, and any PSR summer course. You do not receive academic credits or a grade. Each instructor determines the ways their auditors are expected to participate in the course, but auditors usually do not write papers or take examinations. Audited courses appear on PSR transcripts (except for MA students) as 0.0 credits with a grade of AUD of the audit is completed successfully, or W (for withdrawal) if not.
- Before applying to audit, refer to the course description to determine whether auditors are allowed in the course you wish to audit.
