Policy 11.5: Tuition Waiver for College Over 60

Original Date of Issue: 7/20/77
Revised: 6/17/15

The Delaware County Community College will waive the tuition for one three credit or one noncredit course per term for those individuals over 60 years of age who reside in sponsoring areas in Delaware County. The College will also waive the tuition for one three credit or one noncredit course per term for those individuals over 60 years of age who reside in non-sponsoring areas of Delaware County and Chester County up to the tuition amount waived for those individuals that reside in sponsoring areas.

Enrollment in courses will be on a space available basis. Not all of the courses offered by the College qualify for the College Over 60 Program. Registration for the College Over 60 Program will be limited to the two business days prior to the start of the class. The College’s Summer terms are excluded from this program. Proof of age (driver’s license, birth certificate, passport, etc.) is necessary when first registering for the College Over 60 Program.

Tuition amounts not waived (non-sponsoring students) and course fee(s) must be paid at registration. The student must pay other costs such as textbooks and supplies. The tuition waiver plus other forms of financial aid awards and/or third-party payments received on behalf of the student cannot exceed tuition and eligible fee charges; if so, the College Over 60 tuition waiver will be reduced accordingly.
