            Photo by Briana Tozour Some colleges, universities, and community colleges offer tuition waivers and discounts to senior citizens.  I have listed all colleges and universities below with links to programs for seniors that I have actually found.  The ones listed without a link to a specific program may not have any discounts.  The contact information is listed for you to check with the registrar in those cases.  The Kansas Board of Regents dictates tuition waivers, however, I was unable to find a specific statute on their website.
