UNIVERSITY POLICY STATEMENT 

The Board of Regents approves a reduced tuition and fee structure for enrolled students age 65 and older.

 

UNIVERSITY PRACTICE 

The ElderQuest program is designed to provide a welcoming environment for persons 65 years and older, as well as give them an opportunity to participate fully in campus programs and activities.  The most important aspects of the program are community outreach to a constituency that will enhance student life through diversity and to build University awareness and support in this population for programming and services targeted at the elder population.

The program will be structured with the following parameters:  1) enrollment will be permitted on a space-available basis; 2) students will not be permitted to wait-list their enrollment; and  3) students must meet the academic requirements to enroll in the course(s).

ElderQuest students will pay ½ of the tuition rate charged at undergraduate or graduate rates, the general fee and the technology fee.  All other fees will be waived.

 

RESPONSIBILITY FOR IMPLEMENTATION 

Implementation is the responsibility of the vice presidents of business and finance and enrollment services or their respective designees. 

 

SCOPE OF POLICY COVERAGE  

This policy applies to all prospective students over the age of 65.
