WCL alumni are entitled and encouraged to audit up to two classes per semester at WCL. Registration and processing fees are $100 per class. Graduates must register through the WCL Office of Alumni Relations (at www.wcl.american.edu/alumni/audit), and receive approval (through the Office of Alumni Relations only), in order to attend a class. All open law school classes are available to alumni with the following exceptions:
- Required First Year Classes
- Classes that are full on the last day of late registration
- Clinic Classes
- Legal Writing Methods Classes
- Summer Academy in Human Rights and/or Arbitration
- Summer Certificate Programs
If you wish to audit a class, simply click on the registration link and pay by credit card. Or, copy and complete the PDF form below and mail it, or bring it, to the address provided. Please enclose a check for the appropriate amount of $100 per class made payable to Washington College of Law, and include your AU ID number on the check.
The application will be approved by email once current students register for classes, and the registrar has given approval. A class for which you apply that is fully subscribed will result in a refund or you can choose an alternative class. The last day to register to audit a class is the last day for add/drop for students, usually one week into a new semester.

NOTE: Classes offered to alumni on an audit basis are solely for the personal benefit of the registered graduate. Graduates may not receive academic credit for auditing a class nor will the class appear on their transcript. In addition, a student/lumnus cannot take classes for credit (as a registered student) and audit classes during the same semester. Since we are unable to verify attendance or performance, we can not provide a letter or certificate as proof of successful class completion.
