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.
