Senior Citizen Tuition Policy

Residents of the State of Delaware who are 60 years old or older may enroll tuition free in many credit courses. Workforce Development and Community Education and Program/Major courses in the College's competitive admissions programs 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 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 15-week session begins for fall and spring semesters and one week before the 12-week session begins for summer semester. Registrations submitted prior to the opening of the senior citizen registration period 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.
