Auditors, Credit-earning students, etc.
are students who attend specific subjects to study without obtaining
credit. In some universities they are known as "departmental
research students." Unlike auditors, credit-earning students
will earn credit in the subject they study.
The participation requirements for such students and
the number of subjects (credits) offered vary from university to
university. However, to obtain the status of residence of "college
student," special students such as auditors and credit-earning
students are required by law (the Immigration Control and Refugee
Recognition Act) to attend at least 10 hours (600 min.) of classes
The Information Center maintains a list of universities
that offer special student enrolment. Please inquire to the center
for further information.
