Kansas

There are some colleges, universities, and community colleges that offer tuition waivers and discounts to senior citizens.  I have listed all colleges and universities below with links to programs for seniors that I have actually found.  The ones listed without a link to a specific program may not have any discounts.  The  contact information is listed in order for you to check with the registrar in those cases.  The Kansas Board of Regents dictates tuition waivers, however, I was unable to find a specific statue on their website.

Image by mathplourde via FlickrIf you are a senior citizen and reside in the state of Iowa there are a few colleges that offer some educational opportunities.  One will extend an audit of credit classes for 1/2 the cost of tuition.  Other provide educational opportunities through Lifelong Learning.  If I have left any out that apply, please feel free to comment and let me know.  The colleges and community colleges that have not been listed did not provide any information on educational opportunities for senior citizens that I could find. These are the educational opportunities at the universities.
