Life-long learner? Consider auditing a course.
Are you a senior citizen who wants to try painting, learn a foreign language, or study engine repair? We admire your dedication to lifelong learning and want you to know that auditing a course at MCC may be for you!
Auditing a course means taking a class, but not getting graded or earning credit for it. While you don’t have to take any exams when auditing a course, you’re still expected to attend class, participate, and do the readings. That means even these “grade-free” classes require a commitment.
Auditing for Senior Citizens
If you are a senior citizen, classes at MCC are open to you to audit, as long as there is an available seat. Audited classes are tuition-free, however there is a $75 parking fee and you are required to register your vehicle with the parking office if you will be coming to campus.
To audit classes as a senior citizen, you must:
- Be 60 years of age or older
- Be a New York State resident
- Register for classes during the fall and spring semesters only
- Check out our upcoming courses for availability
Fall 2023 Senior Audit registration will begin on Wednesday, August 23, 2023.
The registration form will appear here on that date.
ARE YOU A SENIOR CITIZEN WHO WANTS TO EARN COLLEGE CREDIT?
To earn a class grade and course credit, register through the traditional registration process. Taking classes with credit means you’ll receive a tuition bill, which should be paid on time to guarantee your seat in the class.
Print and fill out the Audit Course Form. Please return to the Registration and Records Office (Building 6, Room 203, Brighton Campus) by the following deadlines.
|Semester||Turn in Audit Form By|
|Fall and spring||End of the first WEEK of classes|
