Indiana Senior Citizen Fee Waiver

This tuition waiver for certain Indiana public colleges and universities is equal to 50 percent of the school's in-state tuition.  The institution is not required to waive the tuition of a senior for more than nine (9) credit hours each semester.  The school is also not required to waive fees for applications, registration, laboratory work or self-supporting programs.  Seniors, therefore, will still have to pay for some of their college costs.  Please review the official IU policy and request form for more information.
