THE COMMUNITY EDUCATION AUDIT PROGRAM

Drew University’s Community Education Audit (or CEA) program provides adults and other community members the
opportunity to sit in on undergraduate courses at a substantially reduced fee. Drew’s College of Liberal Arts has the
primary responsibility of educating its undergraduate students, thus some classes, such as the more hands-on studio art,
writing, labs and computer science classes, are not appropriate for auditors. However, there are plenty of other courses
to pick and choose from!

Refer to the course list available in this booklet for dates and times of class meetings this term.

PLEASE NOTE: All applications and course approvals are coordinated through the Caspersen School Graduate
Studies (CSGS) Admission Office (S.W. Bowne, Room 110). It is our responsibility to determine space availability,
contact professors to obtain their permission for an auditor placement, and register students on a first-come/first-served
basis.


WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM?

        ADULTS (24 yrs & older) who:
                  hold an undergraduate or advanced degree or
                  have special interests or educational needs.

        VISITING AU PAIRS are also allowed and encouraged to apply as long as:
                   they can demonstrate proficiency with English.
                   they can commit to attending class on a regular basis. It is NOT possible to begin auditing a
                     course after the semester has started, nor is it acceptable to LEAVE class before it has
                     ended.

        PLEASE NOTE: The Caspersen School of Graduate Studies prints an “Orientation Sheet” in this booklet to
        assist au pairs (and other community members in need of additional assistance) in making their course
        selections. If you need additional advising, please call 973/408-3118.


HOW DO I APPLY?

Complete the online registration form or the attached application form and return it to the Caspersen School of Graduate
Studies with your payment of $295 per course ($395 for ESL classes) by the deadline printed on the following page.
Registration requests cannot be processed without payment.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE AN ADMISSION DECISION?

We will confirm your request for auditing immediately upon receipt of your application.

OFFICIAL NOTIFICATION of your ACCEPTANCE into a class will not come until approximately one week prior to

        refund.

        processing fee will be granted.
       If you withdraw your registration before the end of the first two weeks of fall/spring classes, a full refund minus a
        $25 processing fee will be granted.

COURSE RESTRICTIONS

      Professors are under no obligation to grade papers or exams for Community Auditors, but do encourage reading and
       participating in discussion. On the first day of class, you should speak with the professor in order to clarify his or
       her policy concerning Community Auditors.

      The number of auditors placed in one class can not exceed 10% of the total number of regular students enrolled
       in it. If requests for a specific course exceed this limit, applications will be addressed on a first-come, first-served basis.

      This program applies only to courses offered in the College of Liberal Arts. For information on the Community
       Fellows program available in the Theological School please call 973/408-3571. The Caspersen School of Graduate
       Studies does not allow auditors in its graduate classes.

      The Caspersen School of Graduate Studies office can place auditors in science or math lectures, but can not guarantee
       placement in a corresponding lab/recitation. Lab details should be worked out individually with the instructor after the
       start of class.

      Art studio courses and computer science courses are not open to Community Auditors during the regular academic
       year due to the high demand from Drew undergraduates. Art studio courses are generally available to Community
       Auditors during our summer sessions on a space available basis.

      English writing courses are typically not open to participants in the CEA program. However, those courses with
       fewer than 15 enrolled participants welcome Community Auditors who are willing to fully participate in the course. Low
       enrollment in writing courses is rare; please contact CSGS if you would like to receive last minute (first day of classes or
       later) notification of an opening.

      Courses/programs offered through the Off-Campus Programs office are not available to Community Auditors
       including the Semester on Contemporary Art and the Semester at the United Nations. Freshman Seminars are also not
       available to Community Auditors.


COMMUNITY EDUCATION AUDITOR PERKS

      Parking passes are now available through the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies in the S.W. Bowne Building,
       room 110. This parking permit is complementary and is valid for one semester only. Please do not visit the Public
       Safety office for a parking permit.

      A temporary library card is also available to you through the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies office during the time
       you are participating in courses at Drew.

      Access to Drew’s computer network is not a privilege normally granted to Community Auditors. However, if your professor
       deems it necessary for you to obtain network access in order to participate fully as an auditor, arrangements can be made
       to connect you to the system. Visit the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies with this request during the first week of
       classes. Please be aware that it does take about one to two weeks from your request for a network account to be
       activated.
                                 FALL 2012 ACADEMIC CALENDAR

                                     Drew University’s Community Education Audit Program
    Welcome to Drew University and the Community Education Audit (CEA) Program! We want you to be comfortable and successful while you’re fulfilling
    your requirements with us. We hope that this special information sheet will help ease your way into a new educational system.

    GENERAL INFORMATION
    Please review the information on the first few pages of the CEA booklet with your host family. Inside you will find: the cost of the program,
    application deadlines, Admission/acceptance procedures, course restrictions, an academic calendar, and an application. If you have any additional
    questions after reviewing these materials with your host family, please feel free to give our office a call at (973) 408-3118. Then, please complete the au
    pair registration form at the back of this booklet.

    SELECTING A COURSE
    Please talk over your course requests with your host family to make sure that they fit your work schedule, your interests, and your level of academic
    experience. The preceding page lists suggested courses selected for morning and evening offerings. If you’d like to take a course listed elsewhere in
    the CEA booklet, please be aware of the following:
    Course numbers 100 – 199                  signify a lower level class
    Course numbers 200 - 299                  signify an intermediate level class
    Course numbers 300 -399                   signify an upper level class

    Any course listed with a PR under its notes means that there is a prerequisite; you must have some prior experience or course work in this subject
    before you can audit this class. On the au pair application form please indicate your first, second and third choice(s) for classes to audit. That way, if
    your first choice is full we can try to place you in your second or third choice(s).

    Auditor course requests are filled on a first come, first serve basis. There are a limited number of auditor requests we can process a semester, so
    make sure that you get your registrations in early.

    CONTACT HOURS FOR YOUR CLASSES
    You will not receive college credit for auditing a course, but you will gather contact hours. Each 4 credit course at Drew University meets for a
    minimum of 36 contact hours. Any courses meeting for less than 36 contact hours are noted in the course descriptions in this catalog.

    You must attend class on a regular basis, from beginning to end, in order to obtain your hours.

    Upon completion of your class, and upon your request, we will supply you with a transcript that lists the courses you’ve taken and the number of hours
    you’ve completed. Just stop by or call our office after your class is over and ask us for one. We’re also happy to sign any necessary forms that require
    an educational administrator’s signature.

    MISCELLANEOUS
    You should make every effort to purchase the required books and do all the assigned reading. Many online bookstores like Amazon.com can
    provide you with text books at a discount. Type in your book’s ISBN number at the site’s search link and see what is available. Auditors are not required
    to take exams or write papers, but most professors do encourage au pairs to participate in discussion.

    Auditors do not receive student ID cards. They are, however, eligible to receive a temporary library card.
