Can senior citizens take courses without paying full tuition?
A. Yes, adults 62 or older may obtain tuition waivers for credit courses at Connecticut public colleges and universities, providing space exists. Waivers do not cover costs for books or student fees. Generally they also do not apply to continuing education, noncredit and summer-term courses. Learning groups for retired persons also are popular. Adults, mostly over age 60, find these programs educational, challenging and fun. Elderhostel, one of the most active, is widely known for its college-based vacation and travel enrichment opportunities. To contact Elderhostel, call (877) 426-8056. [ top ] Q.
