If individual students can audit any class and receive a report card and transcript grade but not a credit for a class in which they will later take the for credit, the school will need to set up their courses to each represent the audited class with a unique grade plan tied to the audit grade and the actual course tied to the grade plan in which will calculate the credit in the grade average.

For example: Spanish III is being audited by an individual student for 1st Semester and the student will take the actual course in the 2nd Semester. The school will need to two separate grade plans, one for the Audit course and one for the Actual course. Two courses will need to be created, one for the Audit course and the Actual course in Core:

The Audit Courses will have a separate grade plan and will not be included in the GPA but will be included on the Report Card and Transcript based on the grade plan settings. 

To set up the Actual Classes, this would be based on the standard Course setup using a separate Grade Plan that is tied to the Grade Averages
