SENIOR CITIZEN TUITION WAIVER
U.S. citizens, permanent resident aliens, or legal aliens granted indefinite stay by INS, who are 60 years old or older and who meet the Florida residency for tuition purposes may enroll in courses under the State of Florida?s Senior Citizen Tuition Fee Waiver program. A Florida ?resident for tuition purposes? is a person who has established and maintained legal residency in Florida for the previous twelve-month period.

Course work taken under the Senior Citizen Tuition Fee Waiver is on an audit basis. No academic credit shall be awarded for attendance in classes for which fees are waived.

Waiver of fees is not authorized for the following kinds of courses: directed studies, practicums, internships, music and theatre performance, Continuing Education, and other one-on-one course situations such as theses and dissertations.

The Senior Citizen Tuition/Fee Waiver does not include Activity & Service, Athletic, and Health fees. Therefore, access to services and events funded by these fees are not available to Senior Citizens except as available to the general public. More specifically, the Senior Citizen Tuition/Fee Waiver does not provide access to health services or free tickets to social, cultural, and athletic events.

The free course benefit may be used on a space available basis only. Students may not pre-register for courses for which they plan to use a Senior Citizen Tuition Fee Waiver. The waiver form will not be processed if a senior citizen pre-registers and then submits a Senior Citizen Tuition Fee Waiver Form for the pre-registered course (s) after the fact.

Students attending classes on the Pensacola campus must purchase a Nautilus Card and parking decal.

Students should contact the Office of the Registrar or visit http://uwf.edu/registrar/senior.shtml for detailed information and for the Senior Citizen tuition waiver form.
