Yes. Courses may be audited with instructor’s permission and based on availability. Students must formally register to audit courses in the same manner as any other course after receiving permission. The grade notation ‘AUD,’ which carries no earned credit, cannot be changed to any other credit-bearing grade. Audited courses will be included in the calculation of total credits to determine full- or part-time status. Audited courses cannot be used towards financial aid eligibility and therefore will not count towards financial aid load. Auditing is only available for currently active students. You can request to audit a class by filling out the Course Audit Request form.
There is no fee for sending a transcript from another CUNY school to CUNY SPH. Please note that new applicants must send transcripts directly to SOPHAS, which will incur a fee.
If the class is a graduate-level class that is relevant and you get approval from your department head and the registrar, you may be allowed to take the class.
We recommend that you complete all the core classes before attempting to change your concentration. To start the process, fill out the Change of Concentration/Track Request form. We cannot guarantee that your request will be approved. Please note that the same committee that reviewed your application will also review this request. Therefore, if you were rejected from the concentration that you would like to switch into, unless things have changed on your end (for example, you retook your GREs and scored higher or you got a new job related to the desired concentration), you may be rejected again. You may also be asked to provide additional documents such as a new personal statement.
