Senior citizens, 65 year or older, who are residents of New Jersey, and meet the Admissions requirements of NJCU may enroll in courses on a space available basis. Senior citizens registering for a non-credit course must obtain a letter of introduction from the Registrar’s Office, which needs to be presented to the instructor. Interested senior citizens may contact the Registrar’s Office in Hepburn Hall, Room 214 for details. Senior citizens using a tuition waiver cannot register prior to the dates listed below. Registrations prior to this date render the student ineligible to use the Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver. Doctoral programs are excluded from this program as well.
Unemployment Tuition Waivers must be submitted on the day of special registration. Waivers submitted before or after the registration date will not be accepted. Please note that if you register for classes prior to the designated Unemployment Tuition Waiver registration date, you will forfeit your right to participate in the program and you will be responsible for all tuition and fees due to the University for your courses. The Unemployment Waiver must be dated no earlier than 30 days prior to the first day of classes. A new waiver signed by an unemployment counselor must be submitted for each semester that you will be attending. It is the student’s responsibility to pay any and all fees not covered by the waiver. Please see the unemployment tuition waiver contract for a listing of these fees. The University will not permit participation in the Unemployment Waiver program if a student owes a past due balance on their account. The Unemployment Tuition Waiver will be reduced by any grant or scholarship funds (i.e. Pell, TAG) credited to the student account. All non-credit courses, internships or courses where faculty/other institutions are paid on a per-student basis are not eligible to receive this waiver. Please see the Unemployment Tuition Waiver Contract for more details.
