A tuition waiver is available for people age 65 and over to audit courses free of tuition and related fees with the exception of a one-time $35 application fee and any course-specific/lab fees. This tuition waiver is applicable to on-campus courses only and is available when space permits in the classroom. Some courses have pre-requisites which may need to be met before enrolling. An auditor may participate in class activities at the discretion of the instructor. No credit is awarded for an audited course and an auditor may not later establish credit in that course.

A list of current classes is available on the Current Student Page under Current Events.

To enroll in a course, the following items must be completed at least 10 days prior to the semester's start:
