Arizona: Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver and Discount

This is a comprehensive guide for all senior citizen tuition waivers, discounts, and auditable classes in the state of Arizona.  I am working hard to get the information up-to-date covering all fifty states, which is quite a feat.  To stay informed on all free classes for seniors near me, check back often for the most recent updates.

     In Arizona, senior citizens ( age 60 and older ) may be eligible for reduced tuition and fee waivers at state-supported universities and community colleges.  The specific requirements and benefits vary between institutions, but generally, senior citizens are required to pay a reduced tuition rate, which is lower than the standard rate for regular students.

     For example, at Arizona State University (ASU) senior citizens are eligible for reduced tuition of 50% of the standard rate for undergraduate classes, and 25% of the standard rate for graduate classes, as long as space is available in the class.  At Maricopa County Community College District, the senior citizen tuition rate is 75% of the regular credit rate.
     Additionally, Arizona senior citizens may also be eligible for fee waivers, which can cover costs such as application fees and technology fees.  Some institutions also offer additional services such as counseling and advising specifically for senior citizen students.

     It is important to check with the specific institution you are interested in attending to find out what discounts and services they offer for senior citizen students.
