This is a comprehensive guide for all senior citizen tuition waivers, discounts, and auditable classes in the state of Hawaii.  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.

 free of charge on a non-credit bases through various programs.  In most cases permanent records are not kept and if credit is desired then tuition must be paid depending on the university.

  1. Gee who wants to attend college but receive no credit

  2. someone who is intellectually curious, a lifelong learner.

    1. Well could be easier to learn with a Teacher, someone to guide you and who may know the best way to learn the material. Also some people just enjoy being around other people.

  3. You don't need to take a course to be a lifelong learner. Visit a library and open a book.
