    1. "Registration Fee for Senior Scholars. Idaho residents 60 years of age and older are permitted to enroll in courses, on a space-available basis. The fee is $20 plus $5 per credit. Senior scholars are enrolled after the regular registration days. In addition to this fee, special course fees for specific courses are also assessed (see Lab and Course Fees). Registration under this program entitles the student to instruction and library privileges only, and does not include insurance, student health services, ASUI membership, or free admission to athletic events. Seniors who are graduate or instructional assistants may not use the Senior Scholar waiver." This is on their Website.

  7. The College of Western Idaho allows seniors to take classes for 50% normal tuition. The other Colleges and Universities are much more generous ranging from free tuition at CSI to $25.00/Credit at the College of Northern Idaho. Why the discrepancies in the tuition rates for seniors. Doesn't seem fair.

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."
