Senior Citizens Can Audit Spring Classes At CU-Boulder

Published: Jan. 13, 2000

Colorado residents age 55 and older are eligible to audit regular daytime classes at the University of Colorado at Boulder for a nominal fee through the Senior Auditors Program.

Spring semester registration will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 24, and from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, Jan. 25, at the Koenig Alumni Center located on the southeast corner of University Avenue and Broadway.

The program, sponsored by the CU-Boulder Alumni Association, allows seniors to audit classes tuition-free on a space-available basis. Regular tuition-paying students have priority.

Auditors may select from courses listed in the "Spring Registration Handbook and Schedule of Courses," available from the University Book Center, the Registrar’s office in Regent Hall or during registration at Koenig Alumni Center.

A processing fee of $5 for Alumni Association members and $35 for nonmembers is due at registration. No limit is placed on the number of classes a person may audit each semester. Age and Colorado residency are the only prerequisites for participation.

The courses carry no academic credit and auditors are not required to have completed high school or attended college. By prior arrangement with the instructor, auditors may choose their level of participation with regard to exams, papers, reading assignments and finals.

The Board of Regents started the Senior Auditors Program in 1973 to increase CU-Boulder’s service to Colorado citizens. More than 200 seniors registered last fall.
