Iowa

JoeImage 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.
