Senior citizens who are sixty (60) years of age or older and meet Florida residency requirements for tuition are eligible for a Tuition Fee Waiver.

  • Registration is based on a space-available basis at the University for a maximum of six (6) semester hours of tuition-free courses per semester. For policies that may affect your registration, please refer to the Academic Catalog.
  • Students using the Senior Citizen Tuition Fee Waiver are not eligible to earn a degree as the waiver courses can only be taken on an audit basis (zero credit) only.

Registration Procedures

  1. Students must submit a Non-Degree application. Current Non-Degree applications for various semesters can be found on the Undergraduate Admissions Non-Degree Application page.

  6. Once the senior citizen registration period begins, the Office of the Registrar will review submitted forms for registration compliance and remove any late registration fees.
  7. Students may review their fee assessment online by accessing MyUWF and using the Fee Assessment app in the Financial Resources folder.
