Half-tuition for Individuals 60 and Over

People 60 years of age and over may enroll for credit in most University College courses at one-half the regular tuition. Exceptions include Applied Music, Doctor of Liberal Arts, Independent Courses (i.e. Independent Study, Directed Research, Master's Thesis), Special Programs (i.e. M.S. Biology for Science Teachers), and courses in which enrollment is limited. This discount cannot be combined with the WUSTL tuition benefit, University College scholarships or military benefits. A birth certificate, driver's license, or other official verification of age is required at the time of registration.
