Auditing Anthropology Courses

Auditing a course is a great way to learn something new and participate in class, without having to do the assignments (the degree of an auditor’s participation is at the discretion of the department and course instructor).

Community members are allowed to audit up to 3.0 units of undergraduate courses in a session (typically two 1.5 unit courses). All auditors are welcome as long as there is space.

General information on auditing courses on UVic webpage and in the Academic Calendar.

How to enroll

  1. Check out our courses and choose one or more you'd like to audit.
  2. Fill out the Auditor Class Entry Form, sign and email it to Jindra at
    • For Online Courses: If you don’t have a student number (V00------) and/or Netlink ID Jindra will arrange UVic Affiliate Sponsorship for you (you will receive an email invitation) – this is the only way you can be enrolled into Brightspaces (UVic’s central hub for teaching and learning as of fall 2020 – a cloud-based collection of learning tools that allow students to experience interactive online learning). Once you create your Netlink ID please email it to so the instructor can add you to the course’s Brighspace page. If you have any problems setting this up, please contact the Computer Help Desk at or 250-721-7687.
  3. Once completed, your audit form will be sent to Office of the Registrar.
    • Auditors are only formally registered into their course once the add deadline for degree seeking students to register has passed (September 25 or January 22). You are encouraged to attend classes prior to that date, as long as your instructor grants you access to their course materials. You will receive an email once your registration has been completed, and that will be your cue to pay your fees.
