60+ Tuition-Free Course Audit

If you're 60 or older, you can audit classes for free at Washburn

Kansas residents 60 years of age and older may audit credit courses at Washburn without paying tuition, fees or activities fee charges. Being able to audit a course is subject to availability of class space and to the enrollment of a specified minimum number of fee-paying students. The costs of materials and/or textbooks are the responsibility of the auditor.

Eligibility and Expectations

Auditors are not required to prepare homework assignments or take examinations. They may participate in classroom discussion and laboratory and field work. No college credit will be awarded for courses, thus no transcripts will be generated.

Auditors are expected to follow University rules and regulations regarding parking, library privileges and other appropriate university regulations.

To participate in the program, you must complete an application and return it to the Student One Stop in Morgan Hall by May 13, 2019, for the summer 2019 term.

Auditors must be at least 60 years old on or before the first day of the semester/term in which the class is taught and need to be prepared to have their birth date verified by showing a driver's license or birth certificate when they register.

Registration forms will be processed only after the majority of fee paying students have enrolled.
