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’re 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, although you are responsible for paying any parking fees.

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

Register for Classes

  • Check out our courses. Remember, you can only audit courses during the fall and spring semesters.
  • Fill out the Senior Audit Registration Form by either downloading the form to your computer or by printing it out. The form includes detailed instructions about the registration process.

Spring 2022 Senior Audit registration has closed. Fall 2022 registration will begin August 24, 2022.  The online registration form for Fall 2022 will be available for pre-submission on August 15th.


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.
