Senior Citizens


Bona fide New York residents 60 years of age and older and who have completed high school are permitted to register for undergraduate courses on an audit basis as non-degree students on a space-available basis for $80 per semester (a $65 application fee and a $15 Comprehensive Fee). These students are exempt from all other fees and charges. Senior citizens may take no more than 6 credits a term on an audit basis only. Senior citizens who wish to take courses for degree credit will be assessed the appropriate tuition charges. Senior citizens must submit a non-Degree application and a Senior Audit Form, proof of high school completion and provide proof of eligibility (i.e., Medicaid card, birth certificate, or passport) to the Office of Admissions & Recruitment. Applicants must check the college’s Academic Calendar for application deadline dates and course registration dates.

Change of Status From Non-Degree to Degree

Students who wish to change their status from non-degree to degree must complete a CUNY Transfer Application located at http://www2. cuny.edu/admissions/apply-to-cuny/. In order to have their non- degree courses considered as part of the degree requirements, students must also submit a Matriculation Application for Degree Status. This may be obtained from the Office of Admissions.
