The 55+ Program is a nondegree track program designed for enrichment and pursuit of special interests. People 55 years of age or older may audit courses (except for applied music), on a space-available basis, for a fee of $33 per credit hour and for audit (no credit) only. Such persons should register in the Office of the Registrar on the first day of class.
A 50 percent reduction in tuition is available for persons 55 or over who wish to take undergraduate courses for credit, yet still not for a degree. This reduction will be reduced by any other form of financial aid or discount that they receive from the University for any reason. These students must have the proper background and perquisites for any courses in which they enroll.
Registration for credit courses may be done during the late registration period. Individuals 60 years of age or older who wish to pursue an undergraduate degree must follow the admission procedures outlined in the appropriate catalog.
