As a South Carolina Senior
Citizen, you are entitled to take courses through the free tuition program. The
state regulation allowing free tuition is detailed below:
State‑supported colleges and universities are
authorized to permit legal residents of South Carolina who have attained the
age of sixty to attend classes for credit or noncredit purposes on a space
available basis without the required payment of tuition if these persons meet
admission and other standards deemed appropriate by the college or university
and if these persons do not receive compensation as full‑time employees.
Please note that we are only authorized to offer free tuition on a space
available basis. Therefore, you will need to register for all classes on the
first day of class. We cannot determine if space is available until that time.
If you wish to pay regular tuition for your classes, you may participate in
early registration and should contact the Admissions Office as soon as possible
to make arrangements.
If you would like to participate in the free
tuition program, you should come by the admissions office on the first day of
class (for the term you wish to enroll) to register for your classes. Our
office is located in the Health Education Complex, Suite 2081.
