  1. University of Northern Colorado allows senior citizens 65+ to audit courses without tuition charge although "course fees may apply"; and subject to space availability, as well as either having met the course' prerequisites, or having the person teaching the course "over-ride" the restriction on prerequisites. The person teaching the course can also over-ride class size limitations, in order to squeeze "just one more" student into the class. - DSJM.

  2. Currently AIMS of Greeley provides no tuition breaks for senior citizens even if they are only auditing a course. - DSJM

  3. what does on an "audit" basis mean?

    1. You can "sit in" on classes but do not get credit for them.

  4. Metropolitan state University of Denver: "Through Metro Meritus, anyone who is at least 60 years old may audit courses at MSU Denver at no cost to them on a noncredit, space available basis."

No academic credit shall be awarded for attendance in classes for which fees are waived under this subsection. This privilege may be granted only on a space-available basis, if such classes are not filled as of the close of registration. A university may limit or deny the privilege for courses which are in programs for which the Board of Governors has established selective admissions criteria. Persons paying full fees and state employees taking courses on a space-available basis shall have priority over those persons whose fees are waived in all cases where classroom spaces are limited."
