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.

                              Photo by Austin Guhl THE FIRST YEAR: MAKING THE MOST OF COLLEGE     2010 Florida State Statues :      1009.26Fee waivers.  "A state university may waive any or all application, tuition, and related fees for persons 60 years of age or older who are residents of this state and who attend classes for credit. 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."
