Maryland: 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 Maryland.  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 policy for tuition waivers for senior citizens in the state of Maryland.


(Approved by the Board of Regents, November 30, 1989)
It is the policy of the University of Maryland System to
extend special privileges, where practicable, to senior citizens
who are residents of the State of Maryland? The term "senior
citizen" includes any individual who is sixty years of age or
older, who is retired and whose chief income is derived from
retirement benefits, and who is not employed full-time.
Privileges to be extended to such individuals shall include,
subject to certain conditions, waiver of tuition for
undergraduate and graduate courses, use of the libraries, and
such other privileges as individual institutions shall determine."
To read the waiver in its entirety read here.
