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 cost to senior citizens is a $33 per-credit 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 can also choose to audit a course. This means they would still pay the cost per credit but would be exempt from taking test 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.

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.
