Section III

Senior Citizen Enrollment

Minnesota residents 62 years of age or over may enroll in courses for credit, audit any course offered for credit, or enroll in non-credit courses. Courses taken for credit require $18.00 per semester credit. Students are also responsible for the cost of books, materials, and for all student fees except the Student Activity Fee. No limit is placed on the number of terms senior citizens may attend, and no income limitation is imposed in determining eligibility. Enrollment is contingent, however, on space availability after all other tuition-paying students have been accommodated. This means that senior citizens must register during the add/drop period that begins the day after the first day the class meets.
