Who Qualifies as a Senior Citizen Student?

If you are a MN resident senior citizen, 62 years of age or older before the beginning of any term in which you wish to enroll.

Take a Course for Credit
You may enroll in credit courses on a space-available basis at a reduced tuition fee of $20 per credit!

Audit a Course
Auditing a course means attending but not taking tests, being graded or earning college credit.  MN resident senior citizens who choose to audit a course are not charged tuition.  However, regular and special fees, books and materials are the responsibility of the student.  The request to audit the course must be made at the time of registration.  

How to Register
Senior citizen reduced-fee registration begins on the first day of the term.  Go to the Records and Registration window in Student Services (temporarily located in the Partnership Center) to enroll in your selected course (on a space available basis) and have the senior rate applied to your account.  Please be prepared to provide proper identification, including date of birth such as a MN driver's license.
