Basic Degree Non-Credit Study

Canadians or permanent residents or current students wishing to audit an Emmanuel basic degree course must have the permission of both the college and the instructor. Priority may be given to those with prior education formation in the course topic.

Course instruction and readings are in English. Auditors must meet the minimum English language competency standard.

Courses that are audited will under no circumstance be assigned a grade; neither will they be considered for credit. Instructors will not mark written work for auditors. Auditors are expected to prepare for classes. Guidelines for participating in class exercises and discussions are to be established in consultation with the instructor.

Graduate Non-Credit Study

Canadians or permanent residents or current students wishing to audit an Emmanuel graduate course must demonstrate academic qualification to take the course, an ability to participate at an advanced level, and have the permission of the instructor.

Courses that are audited will under no circumstance be assigned a grade; neither will they be considered for credit. Instructors will not mark written work for auditors. Auditors are expected to prepare for classes. Guidelines for participating in class exercises and discussions are to be established in consultation with the instructor.

Current graduate students should refer to the applicable section in their TST Handbook for auditing procedures.

Covid-19 Update

Auditors in Emmanuel College courses can access course readings in several ways. Each course has required textbooks that students are required to obtain or purchase on their own. Emmanuel uses a Canvas-based learning management system called Quercus, where faculty post shorter assigned articles. If the course requires library research, then auditors use their local library system to check out or request the necessary resources. Auditors in the Greater Toronto Area may visit the Emmanuel College library for this purpose only if COVID-19 restrictions are lifted to the extent that the library can reopen.
