In compliance with the Senior Citizens Higher Education Act, the University offers classes with tuition and certain fees waived for persons 60 years of age and older, who have been legally domiciled in Virginia for at least one year. Tuition-paying students are given priority. A senior citizen shall only be admitted to a class, tuition-free, after all tuition paying students have been accommodated.
The tuition-free privilege cannot be retroactively exercised after payment has been received. Some program-specific fees may apply and cannot be waived.
Senior Citizens cannot self enroll in classes. A senior citizen shall only be permitted to register for a class, tuition-free, after all tuition paying students have been accommodated and there are still spaces available. Registration for individuals using the Senior Citizen’s Higher Education Act benefit begins just prior to the first day of class. Registration must be completed online via this form, including uploading any required approval documents.
