Virginia

"Senior Citizens Higher Education Act

Section §23-38.56 of the Code of Virginia (also known as the Senior Citizens Higher Education Act) states that Virginians age 60 and older may take college courses without paying tuition. Older citizens may register for and enroll in courses in any state institution of higher education (subject to the admission requirements of the institution) as a full-time or part-time student for academic credit if their federal taxable income does not exceed $15,000 per year. The State Council of Higher Education (SCHEV) has details of the Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver.
Virginians age 60 and older, regardless of income, may register for and audit courses in any Virginia institution of higher education. Students may have to pay for course materials and laboratory fees. For more information, contact the admissions office of the state college or university nearest you. SCHEV offers a listing of state colleges and universities."

Other Educational Sources for Seniors

     A few months back I missed an extraordinary opportunity to write a few pages about this site in a newly released book.  I had not been posting in a while due to personal reasons, and so I missed this email from an expert in tuition waivers and discounts for all age groups.  Anywhere that I can find information to save you money while pursuing yours goals, whether it be my website or someone else's, I will always pass that information along.  Hopefully these collections of resources will help you as well as your children and grandchild.
     As I was saying, I received this email about my website.  I decided to do a little research on this person.  Her name is Jennifer Cook DeRosa and she is a mother of four sons whom she homeschooled.  She is an award winning chef.  Her love for cooking didn't stop there because she launched a culinary degree program at her local community college.  Furthermore, she spent the next 20 years dedicating her life to higher education administration advising and instructing students. She is also that author of two books in the education arena.  She did as we all did to pay for her culinary degree.  However, she used the techniques taught in her book to earn subsequent degrees.  In this particular book, she has dedicated an entire chapter on senior citizens seeking credit or non-credit courses tuition free.  The book is called Completely Free Colleges.  She has also written Homeschooling for College Credit.  I will post a link for you to acquire these books.  You can also find her on Facebook.  Just search Completely Free Colleges and you will see the many resources listed there.  Here are the links to get you started with your search.  I hope this helps.

  Vermont residents who are 65 years or older are eligible for a tuition waiver within the Vermont State Colleges system for up to two courses per enrollment period unless the President or the President’s designee grants express written permission for additional courses during the same period. To be eligible, such persons must be non-matriculated and may not take the place of a paying student in courses with enrollment limits. Eligible persons must pay relevant registration and course fees and shall not be entitled to any other college service or benefit, unless otherwise expressly permitted in writing by the President or President’s designee, except for those services or facilities otherwise available to the public at-large.
