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