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

Many colleges, universities, and community colleges throughout the state of Oregon provide tuition waivers and discounts for their senior citizens.  For those campuses where no tuition waiver or discount was found, call the institution and inquire about fees using the contacts provided below.  Just because a discount or waiver was not found doesn't mean that one does not exist.
