Senior Citizen Tuition Policy

Residents of the State of Delaware who are 60 years old or older may enroll tuition free in any credit course. Workforce Development and Community Education courses are excluded. Persons eligible for this privilege are not required to pay tuition and registration, late registration, and student services fees.

They shall pay the cost of all books, supplies, and other fees. This privilege shall not apply for any course in which competitive admissions is required. This privilege is granted on a space-available basis. Due to limited space availability, the senior citizen registration period for tuition-free courses begins one week before the start of the semester. Senior citizens may request the tuition waiver by submitting the Senior Citizen Registration Form to the Registrar’s Office. Registrations submitted prior to one week before the semester start will not be eligible for a tuition waiver. Students are not eligible for the senior citizen tuition waiver for any courses for which they were registered prior to the start of the senior citizen registration period.
