Students aged 65 years or older are able to audit one class per semester with no tuition charge. They may also take additional courses at any Vermont State College institution at the rate of 50% of the charged tuition. To be eligible for a free audited course, senior citizens must be non-matriculated (not seeking a degree). Senior citizens may also enroll in credit-bearing coursework applicable to degree or certificate programs at the rate of 50% of the charged tuition.
A few rules:
- 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.
