Well, actually, I rather doubt that one can get into classes for
free just by asking the professor. That's what auditing and the
usual auditing fees are for, generally speaking. Speaking from
my experience with 4 colleges/universities, that is.
And, generally speaking, a college degree is needed for a relatively
select few - those going to to advanced degrees for example. One
could argue as to whether or not graduate school is merely more
of the same, but one could not ignore the fact that it is necessary
if one wishes to do advanced scientific research (omitting the case
of those of extraordinary wealth, who could, perhaps, outfit their
own labs and fund their projects.)
