New Jersey

Most all of the public colleges, universities, and community colleges offer senior citizens tuition waivers.  Because most do offer these waivers, if a college that you want to attend is not on the list, or is on the list with no tuition waiver information found, call the institution in question and inquire about the possibility of an available waiver.
