As a CCV student age 65 and older*, you may audit one course tuition-free per semester. Additional classes are available at a reduced rate. 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. Auditing senior citizens will not be registered until at least one week before the start of the applicable semester.
- 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.
*Students who are 65 years or older are able to audit one class per semester with no tuition charge and take additional courses at a reduced tuition rate at any Vermont State College institution.
