" Age Waiver. Act 678 of 1975. Waiver of tuition and fees for students who are sixty years of age or older.
Section 1. Hereafter, when any person sixty (60) years of age or older is admitted and enrolls as a student in any State-supported institution of higher learning in this State, the Board of Trustees of the institution or other appropriate institutions officials shall waiver all tuition charges and fees for such student. Students eligible for this waiver must pay all other charges, such as graduation fees, lab fees, special course fees, auto registration, change of schedule fee, etc. This waiver is offered on a space available basis. Courses offered through Continuing Education do not qualify for tuition waiver.
Section 2. All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this Act are hereby repealed.
Section 3. It is hereby found and determined by the General Assembly that in many State-supported institutions of higher learning in the State, enrollment is at a low level and that some classes at such institutions are unusually small; that it is in the best interest of the citizens of this State that the educational opportunities at such institutions be made available to older citizens who wish to improve their education without the payment of tuition and fees normally charged students; that many older citizens would take advantage of the opportunity for furthering their education if such opportunity was made available without the necessity for paying tuition, and that such program would also be beneficial to the State-supported institutions in the State; that this Act is designed to permit such persons to attend college without the payment of tuition and fees and should be given effect at the earliest possible date. Therefore, an emergency is hereby declared to exist and this Act being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage and approval.
