Senior Citizen Waivers

Connecticut resident senior citizens, age 62 and over, are eligible for tuition-free study at the University. The waiver of tuition includes the annual State Tuition and State University Fee for full-time study and the per-credit fee for part-time study. However, all part-time students, including those who are registered as senior citizens, are responsible for paying the registration fee, as well as any course studio or lab fees. Other fees, such as the University General Fee, and the Student Activity Fee, are not waived for senior citizens.

A waiver of fall/spring part time tuition and General University fee or part time course fees for all other terms is authorized for any Connecticut resident age 62 and older providing that at the regular registration period there is space available in the course(s) in which they intend to enroll.

Part time online tuition is waived at 25%.
