Senior Citizens (age 60+)
Senior citizens (persons of 60 years of age and older) may enroll in undergraduate courses at LaGuardia in a variety of ways.
Degree programs: Senior citizens may enroll and enter degree programs identical to any other student and may be eligible for financial aid. All fees apply to these degree seeking students. Apply for a degree program.
Audit courses: Senior citizens may also enroll on a space-available, audit basis without tuition charge and without credit. Individuals seeking this waiver must apply as a non-degree student and must submit proof of age and residency at the time of admission. A $65.00 per term/session fee and a one-time $15.00 university consolidated fee applies as well as any penalty fees that may be incurred (e.g., late registration payment, processing fees or library fines). Seniors are usually invited to register shortly before the start of the semester. A registration date will be sent upon receipt and review of the application.
Note: An audit grade is assigned to the students who have officially registered to audit a course, such as senior citizens with non-degree status. Audited courses may not be retaken for credit. Students must request an audit grade at the time of registration or within the first three weeks of the semester by notifying the instructor. The AUD grade does not signify that the course was completed.
