           Photo by Nik Shuliahin

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

This is the statute concerning college tuition waivers in the state of Kentucky.

" 164.284 Waiver of tuition and fees for person sixty-five or older -- Conditions.

(1) When any person sixty-five (65) years of age or older, who is a resident of the Commonwealth, is admitted and enrolls as a student in any state-supported institution of higher learning in this Commonwealth, the board of trustees of the institution or other appropriate institutional officials shall waive all tuition charges and fees for such student, except as provided in subsection (2) of this section.

(2) If classes are full or the granting of free admission requires additional units, the institution may deny admission under this section.
