Maine: Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver and Discount

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

"Senior Citizens
For the purpose of administering this waiver, “senior citizens” are defined as Maine residents who are, or will become, 65 years of age during the semester for which they are requesting the waiver.
The Board of Trustees authorizes the waiver of tuition for senior citizens who register for undergraduate courses on a credit basis at any unit of the University of Maine System.  Applicants must establish financial need."
