Reduced tuition

Anyone over 60 years of age may register for most credit classes for a special tuition rate of $5 per class (plus additional fees) after the fifth instructional day of the quarter, but before the 10th day. Registration is on a space-available basis for a maximum of two classes per quarter. Students may not enroll in the class if the current capacity is at its limit. Even with reduced tuition, students must still pay any additional fees for the class. Courses and fees can be viewed at

Note: There will be no transcript record for classes taken on a space-available basis. These classes do not qualify for transfer.

Additional important details:

  • Must be a Washington resident (who have been domiciled in Washington for 12 or more months).
  • Seniors who would like the tuition discount must register over the counter.
  • The class must have space in order for seniors to sign up for it.
  • A class taken for reduced tuition must be audited
  • If a person does not want the senior discount they can sign up on the first day full price.
