University of Arkansas waiving spring tuition for students 60 and older

Fee Waiver form

Arkansas senior citizens who want to go to college got some good news this week.

University of Arkansas officials announced Tuesday that residents age 60 and older can continue to enroll in credit courses, tuition free, on a space-available basis.

Julie Crawford, coordinator of senior citizen admissions for the school, said older residents apply for different reasons including a desire to stay active or to continue learning.

“Some take classes to complete a degree, while others take classes in areas that interest them,” said Crawford.

Senior citizens wishing to enroll in a spring program should apply as soon as possible to ensure admission before the Jan. 13 registration period.

In addition to completing the application for admission, participating senior citizens are asked to provide age verification by completing the Senior Citizen Tuition Fee Waiver form.
