The pursuit of knowledge is a lifelong process, and OCCC is pleased to offer senior learners the opportunity to enhance new and existing skills through challenging and intellectually stimulating programs. If you are an Oregon resident who is 60 or older, you may be eligible for free or discounted tuition rates — other student, course, and college fees will apply.
Seniors get free tuition for credit classes when taken for an audit grading option. Auditing is taking a class without receiving a grade or credit. You can only audit a class if there are still seats available on the first day of class. This 100% tuition-only waiver does not apply to any college fees or any of the fees that are associated with a course. Many classes fill up early, so space is not guaranteed. The only way to secure a spot in a class is to register early and pay full tuition. Auditing students must be registered for eight credits or fewer per term.
“As a life-long learner and someone very familiar with the high quality of instruction at OCCC,” said waiver-program participant Jane Hodgkins, “I was very excited to take advantage of the senior waiver and enroll in an art class this summer. The class has been challenging and it’s inspiring to see the work of my fellow students. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s available for winter term.”
