Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver

The University of Maine System Board of Trustees has developed a tuition waiver, which focuses on Maine residents who will reach the age of 65 years or older during the semester in which they enroll, who are seeking to take undergraduate university courses for personal enrichment and/or, to attain their first undergraduate degree. The policy, adopted in 2012, states:

The Board of Trustees authorizes the waiver of tuition and Board-approved mandatory fees for senior citizens who register for undergraduate courses on a credit or audit basis at any university of the University of Maine System.”

Mandatory fees are those which are not classified as departmental, specific to a course or self selected; simplified, the mandatory covered fees are the technology fees and the activity fees only. All other fees would be the responsibility of the student.


Senior students wishing to enroll in classes or receive advising services regarding this opportunity are encouraged to visit or call the DLL Advising Center.
