Senior Citizen Tuition Exemption

Senior citizens (age 62+) who are legal residents of the State of Minnesota may register for courses on a space-available basis beginning the day after the first day of class. The total cost to senior citizens is $32.35 per-credit ($20 per credit tuition plus regular fees) plus any special fees required for an individual course. Senior citizens who register before the second day of the term are required to pay full tuition and fees. Senior citizens can also choose to audit a course.  This means they would still pay the cost per credit but would be exempt from taking tests or completing assignments.  To audit the course both the student and the teacher need to complete the Class Audit Form and return it to the Student Services Office in Backes Student Center.

To apply for the Senior Citizen Tuition Exemption, contact student services and provide proof of age.



Books will cost approximately $840 for the academic year. (Note: Books and supplies for Engineering and Nursing students are estimated at $1,350/year.) You can calculate your exact book cost by visiting the Bookstore.


Students with a valid FAFSA on file at Itasca Community College are eligible to charge book costs to their student account against their anticipated financial aid. Any charges not covered by financial aid are the responsibility of the student. 

Book charging is allowed one week before each semester starts and ends seven business days after the start of the semester. If students do not charge their book costs during the allowable timeframe, then students must pay out of pocket. Financial Aid staff reserve the right to authorize book charging due to extenuating circumstances or college error, if warranted. Check the financial aid calendar for specific book charging dates.
