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

 Vermont residents who are 65 years or older are eligible for a tuition waiver within the Vermont State Colleges system for up to two courses per enrollment period unless the President or the President’s designee grants express written permission for additional courses during the same period. To be eligible, such persons must be non-matriculated and may not take the place of a paying student in courses with enrollment limits. Eligible persons must pay relevant registration and course fees and shall not be entitled to any other college service or benefit, unless otherwise expressly permitted in writing by the President or President’s designee, except for those services or facilities otherwise available to the public at-large.
