Grading Methods

When registering for a class I am given two choices of grading methods audit or normal. What does audit mean and what does normal mean? 


A grading method of Audit permits a student to attend a course without performing graded work. An audited course appears on the transcript but does not earn any credits and can't be used to satisfy graduation, certification or licensure requirements. If you are taking a class on an audit basis, this must be finalized during the drop/add period. 

A grading method of Normal means the student is taking the class for a grade. Graded courses count for credits towards graduation, certification and license.  Any grading method needs to be finalized during the drop/add period.
