Mississippi

In researching the state of Mississippi no statute was found concerning senior citizens tuition waivers for college.  The public universities, colleges, and community colleges are listed here with links to waivers that have been found.  Just because an institution is listed here does not imply that waivers are offered.  They have been listed in order for me to update as waivers may become available or are found.

Minnesota State Statute:
"135A.52 PROGRAM AND QUALIFICATIONS.


Subdivision 1.Fees and tuition.Except for an administration fee established by the governing board at a level to recover costs, to be collected only when a course is taken for credit, a senior citizen who is a legal resident of Minnesota is entitled without payment of tuition or activity fees to attend courses offered for credit, audit any courses offered for credit, or enroll in any noncredit courses in any state supported institution of higher education in Minnesota when space is available after all tuition-paying students have been accommodated. A senior citizen enrolled under this section must pay any materials, personal property, or service charges for the course. In addition, a senior citizen who is enrolled in a course for credit must pay an administrative fee in an amount established by the governing board of the institution to recover costs. There shall be no administrative fee charges to a senior citizen auditing a course. For the purposes of this section and section 135A.51, the term "noncredit courses" shall not include those courses designed and offered specifically and exclusively for senior citizens..............."

Massachusetts

Massachusetts College of Art and DesignImage via Wikipedia"The Categorical Tuition Waivers are a component of the Single Tuition Waiver Program and have the same purpose of maintaining access to the Commonwealth's public colleges and universities. The Categorical Tuition Waivers are designed to provide financial support to individuals who might not have the opportunity to achieve higher education, without such assistance.


Who is eligible?
To be eligible for a Categorical Tuition Waiver, a student must:

Be a permanent legal resident of Massachusetts for at least one year prior to the opening of the academic year.
Be a United States citizen or eligible noncitizen.
Be in compliance with applicable Selective Service Registration laws.
Not be in default of any federal or state loan or owe a refund on any previously received financial aid.
A member of an eligible category as defined below:
Veteran: As provided in M.G.L. Chapter 4, Section 7(43) including: Spanish War, World War I, World War II, Korean, Vietnam, Lebanese peace keeping force, Grenada rescue mission, the Panamanian intervention force, or the Persian Gulf.
For purposes of tuition waivers, the term "veteran" shall also include any individual who served in the army, navy, marine corps, coast guard or air force of the United States for not less than ninety days at least one of which was served in the theatre of operation for the Somalian mission known as "Operation Restore Hope" and whose last discharge or release was under honorable conditions.
Native American: As certified by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Senior Citizen: Persons over the age of 60.
Armed Forces: An active member of the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force or Coast Guard) stationed and residing in Massachusetts.
Clients of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission or Commission for the Blind: As certified by the respective commission.
If it deems necessary, the institution, consistent with its mission and subject to the Board of Higher Education's approval as of September 1, 1991, may establish additional waivers for specific categories of students.
In accordance with institutional requirements, each student must present documentation of categorical waiver eligibility to the appropriate college officials.
Enroll in at least three undergraduate credits per semester in state supported undergraduate degree or certificate program.
Maintain satisfactory academic progress in accordance with federal and institutional standards. "

This except and the rest of this information can be found here.
