Fall semester registration for the Senior Auditors program that allows Coloradans to audit regular daytime classes at the University of Colorado at Boulder is set for Sept. 2 and Sept. 3.
To be eligible for Senior Auditors, people must be age 55 or older and be Colorado residents.
Registration will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 2 and 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 3 at the Koenig Alumni Center on the southeast corner of University Avenue and Broadway.
The program, sponsored by the Alumni Association, gives seniors an opportunity to audit classes tuition-free if space is available. Regular tuition-paying students have priority over auditors.
A processing fee of $5 for Alumni Association members and $15 for non-members is due at registration. No limit is placed on the number of classes a person may audit each semester.
Courses carry no academic credit and auditors are not required to have completed high school, nor do they need to have attended college previously. By arrangement with the instructor, auditors may choose their own level of class participation in taking exams, reading textbook assignments, writing papers and taking finals.
The Board of Regents started the Senior Auditors Program in 1973 to increase CU-Boulders service to Colorado citizens. More than 180 seniors registered last spring and about the same number are expected again this fall.
Auditors may select from courses listed in the Fall Registration Handbook
and Schedule of Courses, available at the University Book Center, the Registrars office in Regent Administrative Center or during registration at Koenig Alumni Center.
