UA Tuition Waiver

Arkansans over 60 can enroll tuition free for classes this semester

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – It is never too late to join the Razorback family! Senior citizens are welcome on the University of Arkansas campus. They’re so welcome, in fact, they may attend courses free of tuition, as is the case at any Arkansas public institution of higher education.

The University of Arkansas encourages residents who are 60 years of age or older to enroll in credit courses, tuition free, on a space-available basis. College courses engage older learners in challenging and intellectually stimulating programs, and the UA’s “Senior Razorbacks” lend wisdom and experience to traditional students in the academic environment.

Senior citizens wishing to participate in the program will need to provide age verification, complete the Senior Citizen Tuition & Fee Waiver form, and apply for admission prior to the special registration period Jan. 12.

For more details about becoming a Senior Razorback, call the Office of Admissions at 1-800-377-UofA.
