Senior Citizens

Senior Citizens attend college free: As a Vermont resident 65 and older*, you may attend CCV tuition-free! That’s a perfect reason to explore a new topic or deepen your knowledge in an area of interest; take classes in a wide variety of subjects including art, music, history, languages, writing, literature, and even forensics!

  • Classes must first attain a sufficient enrollment level, and a senior may not take the place of a paying student in courses with enrollment limits.
  • Senior citizens must pay relevant administration and course fees. Suitable evidence of eligibility may be required before a waiver can be issued.
  • Depending on your desired courses and academic background, you may be asked to complete the skills assessment.

*Vermont citizens who are 65 years or older are eligible for a tuition waiver at any Vermont State College institution. To be eligible, senior citizens must be non-matriculated (not seeking a degree) and qualify for CCV’s in-state tuition rate.
