JoeImage by mathplourde via FlickrIf you are a senior citizen and reside in the state of Iowa there are a few colleges that offer some educational opportunities.  One will extend an audit of credit classes for 1/2 the cost of tuition.  Other provide educational opportunities through Lifelong Learning.  If I have left any out that apply, please feel free to comment and let me know.  The colleges and community colleges that have not been listed did not provide any information on educational opportunities for senior citizens that I could find.

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.
