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

Even though the state of Nevada doesn't have a statute concerning tuition waivers for senior citizens, it appears that most universities and community colleges try to provide this benefit.  Here you will find a list below with the details as I have found them for each institution.

  1. Unfortunately this website is out of date. Every linked I clicked on was a bad link.

    1. I have been working on updating this website this year, however, due to the fact that under the universities I listed a link to the exact page of the tuition waiver not thinking about the fact that these catalogs update every year, this is impossible to stay on top of this ever-changing cycle. If there is a link that no longer works it is safe to say that there was a discount listed and probably still available. The university links should still work.

  2. I would just call and asked for the admission department of the school you want to attend. Ask for the senior tuition waiver program. Hope this helps, Financial Aid Geek, Katerina St. Claire, "Scholarship in a Weekend.(R)"

  3. You have a wonderful blog. This is really worth to read and it helps a lot of people to learn new information. Please keep on posting. Thank you.
