Senior Citizen Waiver students are allowed to register:Fall and Spring Semesters - third day of classes Winter and Summer Semesters - second day of classes
A senior citizen who wishes to enroll for college credit qualifies for a waiver of tuition only, but must pay fees. He or she must follow all the same processing steps as any other student (admission, registration, etc.) except that at the time of billing, the person brings the bill and the waiver form to the Bursar’s Office, pays the fees only and is enrolled officially. This person is a student in the same status as any other student and is subject to all regular policies.
This constitutes NJCU’s policy and procedures regarding Senior Citizens Tuition Waivers.
