Academic Opportunities for Senior Citizens

The Senior Audit program is designed for adults 60 years or older who have resided in Ohio for at least 1 year. The term audit indicates that the student is taking a UC course without receiving any credit for having taken the course.

Under certain conditions, senior adults may audit courses at the University of Cincinnati free of cost.

How to sign up for a course as a Senior Audit student

Step 1: Complete a Basic Data Form.

Step 2: On the day the course starts, check One Stop Student Services Center to determine if the course is still open. If the course appears available, complete an Add/Drop form. The instructor MUST SIGN the completed Add/Drop form.

Note: The decision to grant permission is at the discretion of the professor and is largely decided on the availability of open seats and the appropriateness of the student for the course. Thus, it is advised for student to pick potential courses and substitutes in case the course is already filled.

Step 3: Once the add/drop slip is signed by the instructor, the student must deliver the form to the One Stop Student Service Center located in the Student Services Building, Ste. 100, in order to be enrolled in the course.

If you have any questions regarding the application procedure or course offerings, we are here to help. Give us a call at 513-732-5205 or send us an email.
