In searching for an exact statute concerning tuition waivers for senior citizens in the state of Louisiana, I have been unable to locate it.  However, I will continue to look and update this entry when I can locate it.  Here are a list of all colleges, universities and community colleges in the state.  Not all instituitions may have senior citizens waiver or discounts including some of the ones listed below.  Colleges that I found a direct indication that they provided discounts or free tuition has a link underneath the college.

Update:  Concerning RS 17: 1807
"§1807. Persons over fifty-five; exemption from tuition; fifty percent reduction in cost of textbooks

A. Any person age fifty-five years or over who registers for one or more courses of instruction at a public college or university in this state and who is a resident of this state shall be exempt from the payment of tuition and other registration fees and shall receive a fifty percent reduction in the cost of textbooks, reference books, manuals, and other aids to instruction which are required by any course in which such student is enrolled when purchased from a public college or university operated bookstore.

B. Any funds lost to any public college or university as a result of this Section shall be reimbursed to the college or university by the state.

C. The tuition exemption and reduction in textbook costs provided in this Section shall be provided only if and to the extent that there are sufficient funds appropriated by the legislature to reimburse the public college or university granting them.

Acts 1990, No. 824, §1, eff. July 24, 1990; Acts 1995, No. 307, §1."
