SENIOR

EDUCATION




Often, the process of growing older can
isolate us from each other. As our friends
pursue their own destinies, we can lose
touch and find ourselves ultimately lacking
the human contact we need to survive.

Taking classes, particularly at local community
colleges, can remedy that problem, bringing us
into respectful interaction with all sorts of
interesting people. In this way, going back to
school—the sheer act of going—can invigorate a
life by coming together with like-minded others.

Did you know that taking a class in just about
any subject can improve your cognitive abilities,
rejuvenate your memory, and have fun all at the
same time? Recent scientific studies clearly show
that senior citizens who stay mentally active
enjoy all of these rewards.

Challenging our brains to grow new cells can take
place at any age. For that matter, we can build
new connections which help our problem-solving
abilities as well as memory. The more its used
the better the brain grows and does.

More older Americans are flocking back to
the classroom now than ever before. Many
professors enjoy having older students in
class because the entire class benefits
from the elders' insights.

Those older than 50 who want to go school
may not have to dig into their own pockets
to make it happen, either, since there is
financial assistance available specifically
for them.

HOW
TO
GET
FREE
EDUCATION
AS
A
SENIOR
CITIZEN




There are free or inexpensive learning opportunities
available for seniors, but many do not know how they
exist.



Instructions


1. Search the internet for free education for seniors.
Many colleges and universities allow seniors to attend
with free tuition if space allows. Some also give
college credit for the coursework. This is a great way
to get back into the job market, or improve skills or
even meet friends.


2. Locate information for your area and for your
state, unless you want to take coursework in
another state or close to relatives.
There are also colleges and universities that have
scholarships for seniors only that will cover full
tuition. Check these, too.


3. Apply to the different places you choose, and
submit any documents they require. Wait for approval.


4. Contact the Registrar or any local campus group
for seniors to learn the opportunities available.
You may find free education for seniors at the local
community college or university.


5. Check out Elderhostel. Elderhostel is a travel
group for seniors that promotes education along the
way. They also have scholarships for seniors, so if
you like to travel and learn as you go, this may be
great to try.


6. Investigate online coursework. If you are home
bound and like the internet, you may find online
courses with free tuition for seniors. If you locate
something of interest, ask about free tuition for
seniors, and ask about scholarships for seniors that
will cover tuition.


7. Contact Continuing Education groups in your community.
They offer coursework that may be free to seniors, or
they sometimes have scholarships. If you find a class you
like, contact the instructor and see if there are free
opportunities for seniors in the class.

SENIOR
CITIZEN
TUITION
WAIVER




Tuition Waivers. Approximately 60 percent
of accredited degree-granting educational
institutions offer tuition waivers for
older adults, according to a a November
2008 survey by the American Council on
Education.

Colleges say one reason more people don’t
take advantage of the free tuition is
because of the requirements. The waivers
often depend on space availability and
sometimes require permission from the
instructor. And at some colleges, tuition
waivers are restricted to credit-bearing
courses, while at others only noncredit
courses qualify. Some states also have an
income cap for eligible participants and
require proof of state residency,
documentation of retirement, and a high
school diploma.

Colleges that don’t offer tuition waivers
sometimes provide tuition discounts to
seniors.

Some colleges offer continuing education
classes specifically for adults age 50 and
older. These courses typically last a few
weeks instead of an entire semester.
