Kansas Residents Aged 60 Years and Older


Who is eligible to apply?

In accordance with the Kansas Board of Regents policy, students who are at least 60 years of age and a resident of Kansas may audit (no-credit) regular lecture or certain group activity courses – when there is space available and for which they meet the prerequisites – without payment of tuition, student support services fees, campus infrastructure fees, and technology and transportation fees. Occasionally, a course may have incidental costs for supplies needed to participate in class activities. In those cases, auditors will be responsible for those expenses.
