Policy: Board of Regents Policy Manual, Section 18.104.22.168, http://www.usg.edu/policymanual/section8/
Any member of the University faculty may sit in any class offered by the University without paying a fee, provided he or she has prior permission from the instructor of the course. To receive either academic or audit credit, a faculty member may apply for the Tuition Assistance Program or register and pay the same fees charged the general public. The audit fee for the course is the same as the credit fee.
Employees of an institution of the University System of Georgia may attend classes offered by the same institution without registering as "auditors" and without credit being offered for such attendance. This provision applies to non- credit courses on a space-available basis. Institutions may permit employees to attend job-related continuing education classes, as determined by appropriate supervisory authority, at a reduced rate or without payment of a fee.
